Help us launch the Videomatica Collection: Free documentary on Longboarding, May 24th

Published by Mark Bodnar

This post isn't really about business or economics research, per se... but who doesn't love a good documentary? And it's free!  And there will be popcorn!

Join the SFU Library on Saturday May 24, 2014 at 1pm for a free documentary film, drinks and popcorn to help officially launch the Videomatica Collection!

This event is family friendly and will feature the longboarding documentary Drop: My life downhill by Marc McCrudden. Following the movie, Longboarder Labs will be offering a free longboarding safety clinic presented by a professional longboarder.

The Videomatica Collection was donated to the SFU Library in 2012 by Graham Peat and Brian Bosworth after the closure of their rental location in Kitsilano, Vancouver, BC. Videomatica still operates as a sales venture in a shared space with Zulu Records. The library is pleased to officially announce that the collection, which includes many rare and hard-to-find documentaries on a variety of subjects and genres, is available for circulation to anyone with a valid SFU Library card.

Brief remarks will be made by Graham Peat, Elaine Fairey, Dean of Library Services, Pro Tem and SFU Professor Emeritus Colin Browne before the screening.

This event will be held at the SFU Theatre -- across from the WAC Bennett Library at SFU's Burnaby campus.  See this poster for more details.
