Have a wild time at the Paws and Claws Film Festival Soiree
The BC SPCA Wild Animal Rehabilitation Centre (Wild ARC) invites you to an evening in celebration of wild animals and nature. The Paws and Claws Film Festival Soiree will be held November 5 at the CFB Esquimalt.
The event will offer the opportunity to view fascinating films submitted by amateur or professional filmmakers in Western Canada. Attendees will also enjoy great food, prizes, dancing and more. Tickets are $55 per person and can be purchased online or at the BC SPCA Wild ARC (1020 Malloch Rd, Metchosin) and BC SPCA Victoria Branch (3150 Napier Lane, Victoria) locations as of September 1.
The Paws and Claws Film Festival is the first wildlife awareness event of its kind in Western Canada. Its aim is to promote awareness, knowledge and understanding of wildlife, habitat, people and nature through excellence in film, television, and other media. The festival is open to first time, amateur and professional filmmakers of any age who reside in Western Canada.
Films must be shot in British Columbia, Alberta or Saskatchewan and labeled with the physical location and approximate date taken. Only films made in 2009 or after will qualify.
Entry into the festival will be free of charge and more details will be available when the official festival website launches in August 2011. For more information, visit wildarc.com.
