Festival line-up:

Friday, February 16 at 7pm
Cadillac Tramps: Life on the Edge
Directed by Jamie Sims Coakley, the documentary explores the ravages and vagaries of the five-member band, Cadillac Tramp, who exploded onto the grunge scene in the early 1990s. But like many of their genre, the members wrestled with infighting and drug and alcohol addiction to the point where the band tragically dissolved at the height of their popularity. Director and band members will be in attendance for a Q and A following the screening and at the opening night after-party at a Fort Langley restaurant.

Saturday, February 17 11am - 3pm
This is the day to showcase the talent of our up-and-coming film makers from Brookswood Secondary, RE Mountain Secondary, Langley Fine Arts and Langley Secondary School. Their films are provocative, mind-boggling, textured and outside the box. The films will be adjudicated by professionals in the field with cash scholarships awarded to 1st, 2nd & 3rd winners.

Saturday, February 17 3:30-5:00pm 
Luk Luk'l.
Watch as the cream of the crop collide with the salt of the earth in Luk Luki'l. Directed by Wayne Wapeemukwa, a Langley School District Brookswood Secondary graduate, the film is a sharp historical critique of what happens when greed rears its ugly head as it did in Vancouver in 2010. While the 2010 Olympics galvanized the people of a city and province into a massive mob of feel-good zealots, the darker side of the Olympic phenomenon rampaged its way through an iconic Vancouver neighbourhood. The Vancouver East Side was, and still is, an area steeped in grit. The buildings ooze with history and its denizens are both proud and desperate. Although the dismal alleys reek of suffocating poverty and despair, the adjoining streets vibrate with cultural diversity. Luk Luk'l – winner of several awards at TIFF and VIFF brings home the paradox in a starkly real and uncensored way. Wayne Wapeemukwa, who now resides in London, England will be interviewed via skype by his high school film teacher, Carl Hofbauer following the screening.

Saturday, February 17, 7:00-9:00 pm
Get Out
If you think Get Out is a tepid remake of Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, guess again. This comichorror film will leave you reeling. 

Sunday, February 18, 1:00- 3:00pm
C'est La Vie
This is a delightful French comedy about a chi chi caterer just trying to get through his last kick at the can at an impossibly dysfunctional family wedding.

Sunday, February 18, 3:30 - 5:00 pm
Starring Jacob Tremblay from Langley WONDER tells the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman, a boy with facial differences who enters fifth grade, attending a mainstream elementary school for the first time.  Jacob Tremblay may be in attendance for Q&A.

Upcoming Events

12th Annual

Golf Tournament 

12th Annual Langley School District Foundation Golf Tournament raises almost $200,000 shattering proceeds from previous years!
It all came together, not like a perfect storm, but rather like a Goldilocks day. Not too hot and not too cold. Just right for the Langley School District Foundation’s 12th Annual Fundraising Golf Tournament.

West Fine Art Show

March 9, 10 & 11

Yorkson Creek Middle School.

  The Langley School District Foundation in partnership with West Fine Art Show is presenting an art show featuring 22 well-known and professional artists showing their works for sale. 

Here’s what happened:

The multitudes gathered to register. They bought tickets to participate in chipping and putting contests; to buy mulligans (parlance for getting good scores); keys to open doors to win cruises to far off places; and chances to win coolers or crates filled with craft beer or vintage wines. The golfers made their way around the lush, green acres of Redwoods Golf Course enjoying smokies from Canuel Caterers, frozen yogurts from Menchies and sliders from Original Joes. They answered trivia questions and participated in Fantasy Golf. They then gathered to have a steak and salmon dinner provided by Freybe’s Gourmet Foods and to partake in the renowned Foundation Silent Auction featuring a huge array of au courant items offered at “holy cow” discount prices! When everything was said and done the event raised almost $200,000 with proceeds going to help support the Foundation’s Food for Thought Campaign and the Youth Homelessness Initiative.
