Handmade Nation Vancouver Premiere... and GIVEAWAY!

This is not something that Canadians are "supposed" to say, but I've been jealous of the States.

Ever since the Handmade Nation documentary started making the rounds of the USA, I've been hoping that it would travel north, cross the 69th parallel, and be screened in Canada. Specifically, in Vancouver.

Well, I am jealous no more! Handmade Nation premieres in Vancouver this July!

Handmade Nation Vancouver Premiere
Thursday, July 9th, 2009
Rio Theatre, 1660 East Broadway @ Commercial Drive
Craft Showcase at 7:00pm
Screening at 8:00pm

Go here for details and to buy tickets.

But wait, there's more. This not just a screening -- the movie will be preceed by a craft market full of local talent, plus filmmaker Faythe Levine herself will be there for a Q&A after the movie, along with a book signing for the companion book, Handmade Nation: The Rise of D.I.Y., Art, Craft, and Design, co-authored by Cortney Heimerl.

In case you couldn't tell, I super-excited about this event.

I'm also super-excited to announce that I have a pair of tickets to give away!

To enter, just leave a comment below by June 30th. I'll draw a winner at random on July 1st.

Big thanks to Andrea and Rob, for organizing all of this. They're the fab duo from Lotus Events, who also organize the Got Craft? and Got Craft? Bite Sized shows.

To find out more about Handmade Nation, check out their website. Poppytalk also ran a great interview with Faythe a while ago.

And last but not least, here's the trailer!
