Friday, Apr 6 | 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Roxy Theatre


Festival opening ceremony, followed by the island viewing of an inspiring new documentary about Gabriola artisans, A Time For Making (60min). It explores the social significance of hand-making, as we follow nine master artisans pursuing and reflecting on their craft on the “isle of the arts”.

Screening will be followed by an intimate chat with “stars” and filmmakers, around the questions: why handmade? And why now? Refreshments served.

Filmmakers Phillip Vannini and April Vannini are artists, educators, and researchers, both on faculty at Royal Roads University. They’re passionate about small island culture and the creative economy, and active contributors to Gabriola community life as volunteers and parents.
