This short film, made by students at Vancouver Film School, shows some of what the poetry slam is all about in Vancouver. These are my friends, my community, my art.
Monday night, we celebrate the slam season with Van Slam Finals. Eight of our finest poets will compete to form the team that will represent us at North American Nationals this summer, and our Canadian Festival in the fall. Monday's show is at 8pm at the Rio Theatre on Broadway just west of Commercial. Doors are at 7. Tickets are $15. Show up early. You don't want to miss it.
