The sixth annual DOXA Documentary Film Festival, May 22nd to 27th, has expanded its repertoire to include more than 50 feature and short films from over a dozen countries, five world premieres, several award winners and a record fourteen directors in attendance.
DOXA continues to spotlight BC film by opening and closing the festival with local productions. Opening Night Gala film The Edge of Eden: Living with Grizzlies tells the visually breathtaking story of Canadian Charlie Russell as he raises orphaned bear cubs in the Russian wilderness. Russell and the co-directors will be in attendance for this Canadian premiere, May 22nd at the Empire Granville 7 Theatre. Directors Sharon Bartlett and Marie LeRose will attend the Closing Night presentation and world premiere of their film Beyond Memory, an intimate profile of BC families coping with a family member’s dementia.
