Water quenches our thirst. It cleanses our bodies. It cooks our food. It baptizes our young. We spend the first nine months of our existence in water. Our ashes are spread over water; some are buried at sea. We’re up to 78% water.
Water creates. It gives life. It makes things grow. In Japan, water destroyed, it swept away thousands. Water killed.
Water gives, and water takes; it is a part of our existence. Water makes dew and snowflakes. Water deserves, and demands, our respect.
On Thursday, May 19th, the C Blue Film Festival unspools at Vancity Theatre in Vancouver, screening the short-listed entries to the The C Blue Film Competition. The subject of the movies is water. If you could help us get the word out about our “little festival that could”, we would be very grateful.
The competition and festival evening is a grassroots initiative by the C Blue Foundation, our new organization dedicated to all water: lakes, rivers, streams, oceans and glaciers. The blue movement begins. General admission is $8. Buy Tickets here.
Join us after the screening for a luxe cocktail and canape party orchestrated by C Restaurant. Chefs Robert Clark and Lee Humphries will serve sophisticated bites that are built with ingredients that are fished, farmed and foraged close to home. Chef Clark and proprietor Harry Kambolis were recently awarded SeaWeb’s Seafood Champion award for their work promoting sustainable seafood. C has an unshakeable commitment to oceans advocacy, and a direct relationship with the fishermen who catch the fish. This is ethical luxury. Tickets are $32. Buy Tickets here.
