The Showcase Showdown Returns!  
18 June, Rio on Broadway

A film festival founded by Hammer & Tong to celebrate Vancouver's incredible independent film community and to draw attention to the creative work being produced by local artists.

The Showcase Showdown features a cadre of promising Vancouver filmmakers squaring off in competition for the title of East Vancouver's Best Short Film. Also with awards for Best Cinematography and Best Acting Performance.

This year we not only celebrate East Van, but also our home for the last three years Commercial Drive.

And the Spotlight Program presents a splendid lineup of the year's best independent short films from around the world.
