Great cinema has the power to educate, inspire and foster empathy across cultures. However, getting a chance to see independent films is often a challenge. Year-round, at the Vancity Theatre, we screen some of the world's best cinema and we are thrilled to offer student-focused matinees with flexible booking times.
Unless otherwise specified, screenings dates and times are relatively flexible and can be booked any time during the week provided there are no rentals in the theatre and the group size is 50+. The dates currently listed on the website are for public screenings and does not include the VIFF High screenings. In the event that you do not have 50 students interested in a screening, please send through a couple date requests, and we would be happy to combine you with another school at a time which works well for you both.
Tickets are $8/student, and we can offer complimentary tickets for up to 4 teachers and supervisors

This Changes Everything
Avi Lewis, Canada/usa, 2015, 89 min.
INFO | WEBSITE & TRAILER | INTERVIEW
Naomi Klein (Shock Doctrine) has risen to prominence around the world as one of Canada's most forceful and relevant public intellectuals. Her cogent call to direct action has inspired youth and helped chart roadmaps for social progressives and environmentalists. Yet, it's also worried those who believe that her critique of capitalism plays into the hands of right-wingers who think climate change is a socialist plot. Join us, Naomi Klein and director Avi Lewis for this special presentation of This Changes Everything.
What if confronting the climate crisis is the best chance we'll ever get to build a better world? Filmed over 211 days in nine countries on five continents over four years, This Changes Everything is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change. Inspired by Klein's international nonfiction bestseller This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate, the film presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montana's Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond. Interwoven with these stories of struggle is Klein's narration, connecting the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there. Throughout the film, Klein builds to her most controversial and exciting idea: that we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform our failed economic system into something radically better.
Provocative, compelling and accessible to even the most climate-fatigued viewers, This Changes Everything will leave you refreshed and inspired, reflecting on the ties between us, the kind of lives we really want, and why the climate crisis is at the centre of it all.
