SCREENING SERIES 2020
For Spark CG Society members & volunteers only.
Not open to general public.

January 1 - December 31, 2020


REGISTRATION FOR CURRENT MEMBERS & VOLUNTEERS ONLY

Throughout the year, VES Vancouver hosts a series of private screenings of the latest blockbuster films, and once again, they are extending an invitation to Spark CG Society’s members and volunteers.

Below are the times and movie descriptions for the current screenings. Please register online before midnight the day before of the screening of your choice. Depending on the title and venue, you may be able to bring guests. Check below for more info. One registration per volunteer!

As a courtesy and respect to our host, please arrive early and be friendly. It's also customary at industry screenings to remain seated until the end of the credits. Otherwise, it is considered rude. Please, inform your guests about this golden rule. Some screenings will be followed by Q&As.

Do not register if you're not sure you can go! Space is limited and we want everyone to have an opportunity to attend. If you have to make changes to your reservation, please contact your volunteer coordinator.

Please arrive early and check in with a volunteer coordinator who will have the guest list. Doors are closed once the screening begins and late comers will not be admitted. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Jack Cunningham (Ben Affleck) once had a life filled with promise. In high school, he was a basketball phenom with a full university scholarship, when suddenly, for reasons unknown, he walked away from the game, forfeiting his future. Now years later, Jack is spiraling down, triggered by an unspeakable loss, and drowning in the alcoholism that cost him his marriage and any hope for a better life. When he is asked to coach the basketball team at his alma mater, which has fallen far since his glory days, he reluctantly accepts, surprising no one more than himself. As the boys start to come together as a team and win, Jack may have finally found a reason to confront the demons that have derailed him. But will it be enough to fill the void, heal the deep wounds of his past, and set him on the road to redemption?
