Capture Film Festival Vancouver Enters 5th Year

abstract:Vancouver had a history of producing world-renowned photographers like Jeff Wall. Yet there was nothing celebrating the local talent or encouraging new artists and educating the public. Enter Kim Kim Spencer-Nairn the founder and driving force of the festival. Kim is a dynamic woman with a background as a CPA who laughs when she says, "Yes, and I'm from Scottish heritage, so you know I'm going to find and keep every penny working for us." While traveling abroad she attended a photography festival in another city and determined to create something similar in her home town of Vancouver. At the time, the only other photography festival was in Toronto on the east coast.

Capture Photography Festival launched in April of 2013. The annual not-for-profit Festival "strives to nurture emerging talent, engage the community, and spark public dialogue about photography as an art form and a vessel for communication. Capture is devoted to exhibiting challenging and thought-provoking photography from local and international artists."

Each April, photography is presented at dozens of galleries and community spaces throughout Greater Vancouver as part of the Festivalís Selected and Open Exhibition Programs, alongside an extensive Public Art Program and an Events Program that spans tours, films, artist talks, and community events. This year's festival goes from April 3-30th. Check out all the offerings here -> <www.capturephotofest.com
