Dead on Film 2010 @ Rio Theatre
This past Friday I had the pleasure of attending the first ever Dead on Film Festival at the Rio Theatre in Vancouver. Before the festival even kicked off it had already been stamped a success, with 25 entries reaching as far as Texas. And for the 10 finalists the opportunity to have your short film screened in front of a jam packed theatre as well as a chance at some great prizes and maybe the coveted “zoscar” (a replica of the Oscar statuette with a zombie twist). And as if watching zombie films isn’t enough they topped it off with some zombie themed burlesque acts in between some of the shorts, as well as a screening of George A. Romero’s “Dawn of the Dead” at the end of the night. Talk about a good place to get your zombie fix.
