The Georgia Straight proudly sponsors the Cinesonika 2 Film Festival
A treat for the eyes and ears in the truest sense, the Cinesonika 2 Film Festival not only celebrates movies, but the soundtracks that play along to what’s happening onscreen.
This year’s festival will be held at the Westminster Savings Credit Union Theatre, a 200-seat theatre at Simon Fraser University’s Surrey campus, on Sunday (February 19). The one-day festival brings together 42 films from 12 countries, with screenings from noon until midnight.
All of the films and videos chosen have unique soundtracks, sound design, scores, or approaches to the sound-image relationship. This year’s offerings include Alessandro Amaducci’s Fear of Me, Not With a Bang, Pagan Inner, and Shedding; James Cook’s Edo Bardo: Stream of Baubles in the Night; Rubaiyat Houssain’s MeherJaan; Amanda Belantara’s Ears Are Dazzled, Touched by Sound; Xuan Chen’s Out; and Roxy in the Box’s The Secret of Love.
Admission to the Cinesonika 2 Film Festival is free, with donations accepted at the door.
