  • The customer will receive their photo in a contemporary Saturday photo card and a copy of the photo will be posted on the photo board.

FASHION magazine representatives will be on hand to observe the styling and hand out magazines to our clients. At the end of the day the editor of FASHION magazine will choose the winning look.

Cinephile presents “Fido” (March 3, 2009)

Celebrating its 5th year of publication, Cinephile (UBC’s film journal) will be screening the award-winning, Canadian zombie comedy “Fido” at the Pacific Cinémathèque (1131 Howe Street) on March 3rd at 7pm. Director Andrew Currie will be in attendance for a Q&A. Guests will be well supplied with beverages, hors d’oeuvres, and a bevy of exciting door prizes and silent auction items.
The fundraiser is part of Cinephile’s ongoing effort to keep our non-profit graduate film journal (the only one in print in Canada) alive and thriving from year to year. The event also marks the launch of Cinephile’s first 2009 issue: “Far From Hollywood: Alternative World Cinema.”
Fido takes place in a 1950s-esque alternate universe where radiation from space has turned the dead into zombies. Fido stars Carrie-Anne Moss, Billy Connolly, and Dylan Baker and exemplifies a clever balance of the light-hearted and perverse; it is a darkly comic zombie film layered with genre parody and political commentary about US Homeland security.

Welcome to Willard, a small town lost in the idyllic world of the 50’s, where the sun shines every day, everybody knows their neighbour, and rotting zombies deliver the mail. A corporation was born: ZomCon, who defeated the legions of the undead years ago. Since then, they have domesticated the zombies and made them our industrial workers, our domestic servants – a productive part of society. ZomCon would like the people of Willard to believe they have everything under control…but do they?
