A look at the Vancouver Zeitgeist Media Festival!
The two day event started with our attendance to the Davie Day Festival on Saturday September 10th. This was our 3rd year attending this massive event!
That same evening we held our World Premiere Screening of "9/11: Explosive Evidence - Experts Speak Out" to a nearly sold out crowed! It was a packed house and an incredible film that is not to be missed.
Our food bank recipient "Quest food exchange" was on hand at both the screening and the festival.
Sunday, September 11th with not a cloud in the sky, we arrived very early to set up a large stage on the Vancouver Art Gallery steps and our many exhibitors and vendors began to set up around 10 AM and by 11 AM we were in full swing with the first performer hitting the stage at 11:30.
Throughout the course of the day we saw well over 3000 people make their way through our first annual festival and take in the many amazing bands and speakers on hand to talk about their many causes.
We had lots of media out including CBC and other reporters that walked around filming and taking interviews.
This incredible festival went off without a hitch.
This event was a fully volunteer and completely free event, enjoyed by thousands and many came up to us and said that they had come from out of town to take in the whole weekend including both the screening and the festival!
We wish to thank the great teams the made this weekend possible.....
Denman Cinema and their support
Bob Gilson for providing stage and sound
Glenn David Loft for providing event music
ALL the amazing bands and speakers
Our green room caterer, "ONE PLANET" that provided 5 star catering to our greenroom
The many great groups that join with us to reach out to the public through this event
And QUEST Food Exchange
And all the wonderful support of the Vancouver 911 Truth Society for working with us and making the screening and the festival so successful! This September 11th was a huge day for them and all of us!
A special mention to Travis and Tony for their carpenter skills and creating an amazing stage platform for the day.
To the team that stepped up to provide security and ALL the effort by everyone that worked so hard over the last month with all the marketing, postering, email blitzes and the small details that made this event an astounding success!
We will see you all next year at the 2ND ANNUAL Zeitgeist Media Festival!
