ARTS IN BRIEF: Oz flick for PM film society
Port Moody Film Society’s pick for November is an Australian work titled Beneath Hill 60.
The 2010 award-winning movie — timed to coincide with the Remembrance Day weekend — is based on real-life events about a group of civilian miners during the First World War who are commissioned to tunnel underneath German lines and plant bombs.
Meanwhile, Home for Supper will precede the feature presentation; that short, produced by the Capilano University film program, is also based on a true story about two Romanian boys who try to escape enlistment during the Second World War.
Director Brett Taylor and writer/producer Luc Poletto will answer questions about their piece afterwards. Admission to both shows on Nov. 9 is $5 with an annual $5 society membership. The curtain rises at 7:30 p.m. at the Inlet Theatre (100 Newport Dr.). Visit pmfilm.ca.
A Port Coquitlam band will rock out at The Cellar on Saturday.
A Fish Called Piranha, which was recently nominated for Best Hard Rock/Alternative Album at the GMA Awards in Burlington, Ont., for The Year of the Two, will play the Vancouver venue (1006 Granville St.) on Nov. 10. Visit www.afishcalledpiranha.com.
A Port Moody church will host a Vancouver Peace Choir concert next week, with proceeds from the show benefitting Share Family and Community Services.
The Nov. 17 event at St. Andrew’s United Church (2318 St. John’s St.) starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20/$15/$10. Call the church office at 604-939-5513 or email email@example.com.
