A Message from the President
I would like to welcome you all to Nanaimo’s own homegrown film festival HUB CITY CINEFEST. For you the audience and the filmmakers, we stand at a very exciting time. Filmmaking and the narrative arts have never been easier to participate in. The digital realm has thrown open the doors to creative freedom unprecedented in history. With the participation and cooperation of our peers we can all work together and support each other in expressing our dreams and realizing our vision. The Hub City Cinema Society is central to that goal. We provide filmmakers with the coordination and tools that make the arduous endeavour easier and more fruitful as well as providing opportunities to work with industry professionals that gives them insight into professional filmmaking. I hope you enjoy the festival's films and extend a warm welcome to anyone who would like to join our group of aspiring filmmakers to make film for future screenings.
- Martin Kostian
President of the Hub City Cinema Society
