Cowichan Valley Film Society -- Hub Event
The Cowichan Valley production of the Travelling World Community Film Festival kicks off this year with our opening night fundraiser screening at The HUB at Cowichan Station on Wednesday, October 25th. Doors open at 6:30PM. Film starts promptly at 7:15PM.

"Occupy the Farm" is a powerful, riveting film that tells the story of 200 urban farmers who take over a publicly owned research farm in protest. They plant two acres of crops in order to save the land from becoming a commercial real estate development. Within hours, they planted an acre of vegetables, put up a big banner that read "Occupy the Farm" and set up a tent village to defend the crops. The cameras follow the story for the next five months. We witness the dramatic and rapid evolution of the tactics and strategies of both the farmers and their adversaries  the officials from UC Berkeley.

 "Riveting from the start."
     -Village Voice.

The screening at The HUB includes complimentary popcorn, some savoury bites and a facilitated discussion after the film addressing the two main topics, advocacy/activism and preserving farmland. Additional homemade, local-ingredient inspired savoury and sweet offerings as well as local wines and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase (cash only please). As we are serving alcohol, tickets must be purchased in advance.

The Festival continues November 3-5 at VIU Cowichan Campus, screening 17 more documentaries, all shown in the Lecture Theatre. For film descriptions and information, visit our website, cowichanvalleyfilm.ca.
