Curio Media Announces Super Channel as Sponsor of its Inaugural Event
Friday the 13th is usually a superstitious day, but for Curio Media, it is an auspicious one, as Canada's premium Pay TV channel, Super Channel sponsors Curio Media's inaugural event, the Viscera Film Festival.
Support for the festival has been flowing, and Curio Media is pleased to announce that Super Channel is a corporate sponsor for the 2012 Viscera Film Festival screening. Curio Media Co-Founder Karen Lam states, "We are grateful for Super Channel's support of the film festival, and their dedication to the promotion of interesting, cutting-edge content."
Super Channel is as excited as everyone else about this Friday’s event. "Super Channel loves horror films and we love to support women directors, so it's a unique thrill (and chill) to support the Viscera Film Festival. We look forward to hearing more female voices in this genre. Congratulations, and have a terrifying festival," said Marguerite Pigott, Super Channel’s Head of Creative Development.
The special one-night Vancouver screening will be at the RIO Theatre, 1160 East Broadway, Vancouver. The show will last from 8:00 PM to 11:00 PM, with doors opening at 7:30. It will be hosted by Urban Rush's Fiona Forbes and will feature a Q&A with filmmakers as well as a special interview with writer/director Rachel Talalay (Tank Girl, Ghost in the Machine, Freddy's Dead) after films are awarded in classic categories such as Best Film, Best Director, but also categories like Best Creature. Tickets are $13 at the door or available for advance purchase on the IRL and Rio Theatre websites.
