    The first few chapter headings in a film we did not program at this year's VIFF are: “Technology Is Great”, “The Industry Is Dead”, “Artists Have the Power”, and “The Craft Is Gone.” To which celluloid-loving film festival organizers might ask: Is it‾ Do they‾ Where on earth are we headed‾ And why‾ VIFF has come a long way in its 30 years and never has the future of cinema--and VIFF's future--been more uncertain. Will it be bright and splendid and fair or will it move so quickly that a great deal of what is valuable will be lost before we know it‾ There are now dramatically more “film festivals” and “films” being made than ever, yet some fear that the industry may be dead. Filmmakers are acutely worried for funding, yet need to operate on a growing number of fronts. Given that the numbers of hours in a day and the numbers of days in a life remain fixed, what limits should we council for our own appetites‾ Why might we miss the Hollywood Theatre and Videomatica‾ Given that cultural agencies seemingly have shrinking resources but more new media and film festival applicants every year, will the centres hold or is babble ascendant‾ Will VIFF's function as an annual international universalist festival be superseded by myriad niche events‾ Technology is indeed great in that it has put the means of creative motion picture production in almost everyone's hands, but will the best artists be the ones to be recognized‾ The entrepreneurial spirit tends to favour change in hopes that it may profit from it, but will artists have the power‾ When entrepreneurs benefit, will consumers benefit‾ Will cultural institutions that have taken years to build remain viable‾ Will cinema, metrics of quality and craftsmanship and, ultimately, quality of life be improved or even be sustainable‾ What do you personally care about for the future of cinema to offer‾ What should VIFF 2020 aim to be‾ Here to wrestle with these sorts of questions—and yours—will be a distinguished group of panellists including: David Bordwell, film critic, academic and author of numerous books on cinema; Simon Field, film producer and former Director, International Film Festival Rotterdam; Andréa Picard, film critc and programmer, formerly of the Toronto International Film Festival and the Cinémathèque Ontario; Tom Charity, film critic and Vancity Theatre program coordinator; and Alan Franey, director, Vancouver International Film Festival.

          The CreativeMornings's global theme for June was 'FOOD' and the Vancouver chapter was honoured to have Fresh Roots Urban Farm Society co-director Ilana Labow and Marc Schutzbank as presenters. As always, this sold out event could not have been possible without our presenting sponsor Vancity, with the help of our ongoing support partners The Province of BC, GDC/BC, Dodson Conference Centre, Ethical Bean Coffee, and Fusion Cine. Ilana is passionate about creating community-engaged learning opportunities through urban agriculture. She received urban farm and community development training working with Growing Power in Milwaukee & Chicago, and studied sustainable agriculture and conflict-resolution at the multi-national peace institute Arava Institute for Environmental Studies, in Israel. Ilana currently sits on the steering committees of Farm to School BC, Sustainable Opportunities for Youth Leadership, is a member of the Vancouver Food Policy Council, and was recently nominated as one of the Vancouver Parks Board’s Remarkable Women in food of 2013. Marc’s studied the economic viability of urban farming and how urban farmers are developing their businesses while finishing his Masters in the Land and Food Systems program at UBC, and now focusses his efforts on integrating production and local food markets into Vancouver neighbourhoods. Originally from the US, Marc graduated from the University of Pittsburgh College of Arts and Sciences and College of Business administration. Together, Ilana, Marc, and their growing army of Fresh Roots staff and volunteers, grow resilient, engaging, education-based neighourhood farms accessible to Vancouver’s diverse communities. A few notable comments (paraphrased) by Ilana and Marc: "We need to connect social and financial goals in food production." "81% of Canadians live in an urban zone and are not connected with where food comes from." "Food is a timeless acts of community." "Fresh Roots established the first of it's kind agreement to farm on school district property." "Learning about urban farming in schools helps fight against racism & bullying." "Community gardens help people grow confidence and security and in turn begin to dream big." "Farming on school grounds was done across North America up until the Second WW. It was phased out in the 40's." The Vancouver chapter of CreativeMornings is run by Mark Busse (@MarkBusse) and his dedicated team of volunteers. Thanks to Matthew Shettler(@Shettler), Josh Nychuk (@JoshNychuk), Mahyar Saeedi (@MahyarSaeedi), and Jake Hermiston for video production. ........................

                      The Dog Days of Summer are slowly winding down and it's back to the Grind for many of us. As disappointing as that may seem, don't let your classroom/cubicle enclosure get you down, cause 24/604 has plenty of suggestions to keep the good times going. Our first stop times perfectly for the launch of the Fall TV Schedule, as Food and Drink Host Momona Komagata heads to Vancouvers Hottest Nerd bar, the Storm Crow Tavern, where sci-fi, and fantasy shows mix with games, and classic movie props everywhere you look. Fit and Fun Host Stephanie Florian then adds some bounce to her step as she literally goes off the wall at Richmond's Extreme Air Park. Then its time to kick back for a fun time as Nightlife Host Christina Meng enjoys some trivia, pub games, and drinks galore with the gang at The Academic Public House. L-Street then spends his last days of summer at the PNE and finds out just how excited you are...or aren't for summer to end. A Trip to Colony Bar for some amazing food and drink deals, then leads us to The Zone Bowling Centre to knock some pins around, and we end our journey at the Electric Owl to add that last spark to the night! 24/604 is a New Vancouver Lifestyle show that will introduce you to the Adventurous Activities, Amazing Food, and Exciting Night Spots that make up the Gems of Our City.
