Great turnout for Vagabond Film Show

The event raised $200 for the Hope Mountain Market

The Vagabond Film Show was completely bursting at the seams this year with a great amount of support and community spirit. The vibe in the room Saturday night was electric to say the least.

The live music from Justin Brown, Jake Baerg and Nick Pauls set a great tone to start the film show off. Nine entries were received for the competitive portion of the show, with “Fishing as an Art Form” by Captain Quinn taking first place, followed by the runner-up “Money Maker” by Will Baerg.

Sixteen films were shown in total, with the laughter and shout outs spilling over from film to film.

The event raised $200 for the Hope Mountain Market, with Kari Larson donating a third of her 50/50 winnings back towards the market.

We are already hearing a buzz around town about people making films for next years contest. For a town the size of Hope the amount of local talent is extraordinary.

It’s proving to be an event not to be missed by anyone with a love for the outdoors, music and art.

Thanks again to our sponsors the Blue Moose, Fraser River Raft, Hopebc.ca and The Hope Mountain Centre.

Dan Pereda and Justin Brown
