Shivers’ first CanadaDrome events takes place at The Cinematheque on Jan. 27th following their “best of” 2012 Canadian film fest screenings (which happens to be going on all this month). A huge thanks to cunuxploitation.com for their continued support (they helped out immensely with promoting our first event last year in London). Not only that, but they are the definitive database for all of our Canadian cinematic exploits. Check it out if you don’t already know! And stay posted here with more updates in the coming days.
Shivers Film Society is very excited to announce that Jennifer Campbell’s short film Hike and Kody Zimmerman’s The Familiar will be making their Canadian theatrical debuts, alongside Thomas Newman’s Bong of the Dead and Vincenzo Natali’s cult film Cube, on Sunday, January 27th, at the inaugural CanadaDrome/Shivers Film Festival in Vancouver!
Ticket are $12 at the door (or $10 if you’re already a Shivers member), at the Pacific Cinematheque, 1131 Howe Street, Vancouver, BC. Doors at 12:30 – shows start at 1:00 pm. Local filmmakers will be in attendance for a Q&A session. This is a licensed event (sorry, no minors).
It’s been a great year of success and trials, from launching our new films society in London, England this May, where we screened some fantastic Canadian independent features, including Deaden, $lasher$, The Hard Cut, Catholic Cheerleaders for Satan, and the short film The Red Hours (which should be premiering in Vancouver next year), to the trial attempts at retro double-features in the somewhat hilariously decrepit Rickshaw Theatre in Vancouver.
The new year is shaping up to be pretty awesome, with the launching of Shivers’ CANADADROME at the Pacific Cinematheque this January the 27th – we have local independent features, shorts, local filmmakers in attendance, and some classic Canadian cult films! We’re following this event up with a few more cinematic (and liquor-licensed) offerings throughout February – so keep an eye out for the advert in the upcoming Cinematheque magazine circulating around Vancouver (Jan/Feb) and of course, check back here often for news & updates!
Thanks to everyone who supported us this year – the audiences, the members, The Roxy in London, the distribution companies, friends and family in London and Vancouver, the film schools, and the venues and their managers who all took the time to chat with me at length about this slightly insane endeavor. It’s thanks to all of you that we’re still going!
Ho – Ho – Ho and Happy New Year.

I received this message from UBC this weekend and it’s my absolute pleasure to pass this on to anyone who’s in Vancouver this weekend… Check it out!
One upcoming course that might be of interest to members of the Shivers Film Society is ‘Nightmare on Elm Street: The Anatomy of a Horror Movie Franchise’ (Nov 17)
Examine one of the most successful horror movie franchises in movie history – spanning all nine movies of the series, from the original through Freddy vs. Jason and the most recent remake.
This course looks at the history and background of this series, delving into creative and production details from script to casting to visual, mechanical and makeup effects. Attention is given to what makes a successful horror sequence and film, how tension is built through a combination of elements, and the history and progression of the genre. The course includes screenings of horror material not suitable for the squeamish.
The instructor, Rachel Talalay, is uniquely qualified to teach this course, having worked on the first six films in the Nightmare on Elm Street Series. She produced Parts 3 and 4 and directed Part 6.
