2012 Alone Together Film Festival

Sat Sep 22, 2012 19:00 - Sun Sep 23, 2012

Surrey , Canada

Remember the first time you went to the cinema? The smell of the popcorn, the cushiony chairs, the enormity of the screen… Seeing a film can be a solitary passion or a fun night out with friends, but regardless of the social circumstances, when we’re in a theatre watching a film, there’s a shared collective sensory experience.

For two days, the SFU Public Square invites you to come and escape into the world of film. The Alone Together Film Festival will feature movies that probe the issues of isolation and disconnection in our urban environment – the things that bring us together and the things that push us apart.

The Festival opens on Saturday September 23rd with An Evening Tribute to Shorts – a collection ranging from animation and experimental to documentary and narrative - films that explore the nuances of belonging, migration, identity, and human connection.

On September 24th, it’s Sunday afternoon at the Cinema highlighting the feature-length documentary “This Space Available” which explores how billboards and commercial advertisements dominate our public space, and “One Voice”, the short music video that demonstrates the power of music as a connecting force.

Hosted at the Westminster Savings Credit Union Cinema in the beautiful SFU Surrey building (at the Surrey Central Skytrain station), the festival will connect film buffs and community activists with students and newcomers.
And the best part of all – it’s free! So bring your family, your neighbor and your friends and join us for a night or an afternoon at the movies!

Free admission. (Seats available on a first come, first served basis)

Saturday An Evening Tribute to Shorts – 7pm to 9pm
Sunday Afternoon at the Cinema – 2pm to 4pm


2012 Alone Together Film Festival Call for Entries

Fri Sep 07, 2012 00:00

Surrey, Canada

The Alone Together Film Festival is presented by SFU Public Square; a signature project of Simon Fraser University - The Engaged University. In September 2012, the SFU Public Square is holding its inaugural Community Summit, exploring the issue of isolation in the urban environment. The film festival is one of a number of events taking place over a week of programming, September 18 - 23, 2012. We are now calling for film submissions for its 1st edition taking place Sep. 21-23, 2012.

The theme of ATFF relates to a critical and growing issue - a lack of social capital and feeling of belonging, neighbourliness, and human connection in our urban cities. The results of a recent community outreach initiative, conducted by the Vancouver Foundation, suggests the themes of isolation, community connectedness and belonging are taking on increased importance and significance in Metro Vancouver. As stated in A Better Connection, “The issue people said concerned them most was isolation and disconnection; the feeling that we increasingly live in silos, separated by race, language, income, age, and even geography.'

We aim to bring together SFU students, staff, alumni and faculty, as well as community residents, business and service organizations with an interest in the issues of urban isolation and disconnection. The festival will offer post-film dialogues, and opportunities to engage with filmmakers.
