The first ever Kitsilano Film Festival wrapped up last night with an Awards event at the Sunset Grill. The Grand Prize went to Jason Karman for his short documentary ‘State of Yo.’
Local Vancouver icon Harvey Lowe won the worlds first yo-yo championship in 1932. He experienced the early loss of his father, political and economic unrest, and a brain tumour. The yo-yo, which made him famous, helped him regain his identity.
A Special Mention Award was given to the short film ‘Latte America’ by the directing team ‘Product’ who are Jesse Clark, Enzo Zanatta and Gabriel Caldwell.
