Hey! Make this Friday (or Saturday) a date night and hit up the Rio for the Canadian premiere of the Sign Painter Movie! If you’re reading this blog you’re already into art & design in some way, and if you love typography and the handmade movement – even better.
Our very good friends over at Lotus Events are hosting the Canadian premiere of the documentary, the Sign Painter Movie, this weekend. And really, you should go. Faythe was last in town with her previous film Handmade Nation, and I’m so excited to see what she’s been working on since!
There was a time, as recently as the 1980s, when storefronts, banners, and even street signs were all hand-lettered with brush and paint. You can see some great examples locally on the windows of Rainier Provisions, Old Faithful Shop, and Harvest Community Foods to name a few.
Join directors Faythe Levine and Sam Macon at the Canadian premiere of the Sign Painter movie on Friday, June 7th and Saturday, June 8th, 2013 at the Rio Theatre located at 1660 East Broadway in Vancouver, BC. Doors are at 6:30pm, with a screening at 7:30pm, and followed by a Q+A. Tickets are $20 in advance via the website and $25 at the door.
