East Van Showcase began with a mission: to rally local filmmakers and audiences, and create a space where our community’s creativity could be given the attention it deserves.
Now we are entering our third year and more than ever EVS is about celebrating and promoting local film and the neighbourhoods we live in. Vancouver’s indy scene continues to grow and we are proud to be growing along with it.
The quality of local films is truly the best we have seen yet. There were more submissions than ever this year and our team had the daunting work of narrowing down the local field to just 9. Without further ado, here are the short films that will be competing in the Showcase Showdown:
Bestia– Gigi Saul Guerrero
Violet and June– Linnea Ritland
The Promise – Jason Karman
Baseball Dad– Jessica Blaquiere-Gardner
I Love You So Much It’s Killing Them – Joel McCarthy
The Writer – Amy McLeish
Akashi – Mayumi Yoshida
The Game– Kevin Saxby
Last Night – Joel Salaysay
