BC folks - there's a premiere of a really interesting looking archives documentary at VIFF. "The Unarchived" is about community archives in BC preserving the history of various underrepresented communities. There's a couple screenings in early October, and it's streaming on VIFF Connect from October 4-9.

Amazing discovery at a yard sale: a vinyl record with a Hi-NRG remix of the official theme song for the Vancouver Gay Games III in 1990.
