The Columbia Valley Arts Council is preparing to hold two events at Pynelogs Cultural Centre in February.
Cinefest is back at Pynelogs on February 8 with a showing of Babies.
Selected as the opening night film at the 2010 Hot Docs Festival, the film was created by acclaimed documentary filmmaker Thomas Balmès, it redefines the nonfiction art form as a joyful and groundbreaking documentary.Simultaneously following four babies experiencing their first year of life, the film is at times both heartbreaking and hilariously funny.
Introducing each newborn child at their most fragile stage, the audience can connect to these tiny creatures, experiencing life for the first time.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the film starting at 7 p.m.Tickets are $10 at the door with refreshments by Terroir Catering.
On February 13, Pynelogs Cultural Centre will host the Griffith Hiltz Trio
Doors open at 6:15 p.m. with the concert kicking off at 7 p.m.
Tickets are on sale at The Book Bar and Pynelogs with pre-sale tickets $17 and $19 at the door.
Johnny Griffith and Nathan Hiltz are long- time friends and creative collaborators. They knew they were on to something when they incorporated the bass pedals, that had been gathering dust in Johnny’s basement, into their weekly jam session. Inspired by their curiosity of using vintage technology to replicate an organ’s place in a trio, these fearless multi-instrumentalists began to co-create and something truly unique was born.
Taking the term ‘multi-tasking’ to the extreme, each member contributes to the groove on more than one instrument, simultaneously, to produce a beautifully layered musical tapestry and making this trio sound much larger than it really is. Their debut album, Now and Then, produced by and featuring Don Thompson, was released in July 2009 to much acclaim and was voted the number 1 Jazz Album of 2009 by Jazz FM.
