Vancouver film fans are advised to start stocking up on sleep, as the city’s biennial dose of 24 consecutive hours of cinema returns to The Cinematheque this spring.
Appropriately billed as The Cinematheque’s 24 Hour Movie Marathon, the event is described by organizers as a “sleep-be-damned challenge that only the most seasoned cinephiles dare tussle with.”
They add that “as per usual, a carefully crafted, super-secret lineup of films will be served — a medley of forgotten gems, arthouse hits, and WTF curios from the four corners of our spinning globe.”
The 19-plus event will include prizes, complimentary craft beer, and tasty treats. For attendees, blankets, pillows, and ” tip-top hygiene” are recommended.
The Marathon is a fundraising event for The Cinematheque, and helps to support its year-round programming and award-winning education workshops.
More details around the event are available on The Cinematheque’s website.
