The Fair at the PNE will close and the kids will return to school but summer isn’t over just yet. Between more festivals, outdoor activities, film and theatre festivals, there’s plenty on tap for September in Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley.

  4. Hi Rebecca,

    I have a non-profit organization’s event for you.

    Pull Focus Film School is hosting an Open House on September 6th at 7 PM. The location is 8-306 Abbott St in Vancouver.

    Pull Focus is a non-profit film school that helps students develop mini docs to advance the media content of charity organizations. These mini docs are useful for fundraising purposes or community outreach work.

    Why should people attend?

    – Get a great introduction to filmmaking and how you can be involved in your community while learning hands-on filmmaking skills

    – Connect with aspiring filmmakers, alumni, instructors, activists, and members of the non-profit community

    – View free screenings of select films

    – Complimentary beverages and snacks will be available

    – Draw for two free tickets to the Vancouver International Film Festival

    Thanks for your help in getting the word out,
    Christina
