Had a run in with Julia Roberts? Bumped into Neil Patrick Harris? Or maybe just “accidentally” stumbled onto a film set? Vancouver Public Library wants to know.
The library is calling for your stories and pictures of personal encounters with the film industry around Vancouver, for a new project called Hollywood North.
“They could be about any aspect of individual encounters with the film industry,” Kay Cahill, manager of digital services, told Daily Hive.
“Seeing a street transformed into another city or another planet as part of a movie set, running into a TV star unexpectedly, or seeing special effects in action.”
The submissions will become part of a new collection in the library’s This Vancouver digital repository, showcasing the history of the film industry in Vancouver.
“The idea of building a collection related to the movie industry and its history in Vancouver came to the forefront because it’s such a unique aspect of the city,” says Cahill.
“It’s also a wonderful opportunity for individuals to share their personal behind-the-scenes glimpses more widely, and have their memories and stories preserved in the collections.”
To submit your digital photos or stories, email [email protected], or go along to future sessions at the Inspiration Lab at Vancouver Central Library to tell your story in person.
Cahill tells us she received the very first submission this Wednesday, taken with local crooner Michael Bublé.
We’re pretty sure you can all do better than that.
