For 10 days in May, Vancouver will be home to the DOXA Documentary Film Festival.

DOXA is presented by the Documentary Media Society, a Vancouver based non-profit, charitable society (incorporated in 1998) devoted to presenting independent and innovative documentaries to Vancouver audiences. The society exists to educate the public about documentary film as an art form through DOXA – a curated and juried festival comprised of public screenings, workshops, panel discussions and public forums. [DOXA]

There are several activities and events happening over the next few months, leading up to this unique festival and I have the opportunity to share these with my readers.

If you would like to preview a documentary film Thursday February 12th, please leave a comment below and I’ll enter your name in the draw for tickets to the following:

Nollywood Babylon
When: 7:00pm February 12, 2009
Where: Vancity Theatre, 1181 Seymour St., Vancouver
About: “Our first screening on February 12 is the Sundance 2009 hit, Nollywood Babylon: a fantastic Canadian documentary about the explosive popularity of Nigeria’s booming movie industry. Don’t miss the English Canada premiere of this film by Ben Addelman and Samir Mallal, directors of the award-winning Bombay Calling.” [DOXA]
