Vancouver’s DOXA Documentary Film Festival is hosting their annual fundraiser on Friday November 19th. Held at the CBC Vancouver broadcast centre and hosted by CBC’s Bill Richardson, the event will feature a silent auction, music by Veda Hille, and an archival film exhibit courtesy of the City of Vancouver Archives and the CBC Archives.

Tickets are available online for $35 and admission includes open bar (beer and wine) and catering provided by Subeez. This is one event I would absolutely love to attend given the theme is “Vancouver’s History in Moving Pictures” however I will be out of town that weekend. As such, DOXA has allowed me to offer up my tickets to one lucky reader and a guest.

If you would like to attend this gala fundraiser and night of exploring Vancouver’s history, please leave a comment below listing your favourite documentary of all time. I will draw one winner at random from all entries on November 16th at 12:00pm.

Update The winner is Kerry, have fun!

    Through A Blue Lens

  2. Parker says:

    I don’t know if this really counts, but I am absolutely overwhelmed by the idea and success of the “It gets better” videos that are all over youtube. it is a way for our technology to address our social issues in a way that has not be accomplished before. It provides a “documentary” to a viewer who may not have otherwise been comfortable to view it before.

    It spins the idea and intent of a documentary into something that is needed.

  3. Chelsea says:

    For sure the surf documentary Step into Liquid. Just a great documentary that does exactly what it is supposed to do, get people stoked on surfing!

  4. Rob says:

    The Corporation. Such an abstract point of view. What all doc’s need to be. A recent one I really like is Carts of Darkness based on binners on the north shore. Go check it out on the NFB of Canada’s web site

  5. Michelle says:

    I really liked Sharkwater, a documentary about the plight of sharks. Food, Inc. is also high on my fav list, even though it made me wary of my chicken nuggets…

  6. Meghan says:

    Planet Earth Series

  7. Don says:

    Glowing in the Dark, the documentary about neon lights in Vancouver.

  8. Vanessa says:

    My favourite documentary right now would have to be the VIFF documentary Secrets of the Tribe.

  9. Manufactured Landscapes

  10. Yvonne says:

    The Clean Bin Project

  11. Kerry says:

    I’d have to go with “The Cove”. After watching that film I decided to learn to dive and watch seafood instead of eating it. Turns out that watching fish is a lot more fun than eating them.

  12. Alana says:

    Planet Earth.

  13. Sharon says:

    Dear Zachary

  22. Mark says:

    Best Worst Movie was the best film I’ve seen in a while. It is the documentary about Troll 2.
