Foliovision has a very special bond with Canada. After all, Alec, our Creative Director was born in Vancouver and some of our favourite clients are Torontonians. July 1st, 2017 marks the 150th anniversary since the colonies of New Brunswick, Canada and Nova Scotia formed Canada and naturally, we want to celebrate the big birthday too. Fortunately, there are numbers of opportunities to do so even here across the pond in Bratislava.
We were invited by the Office of the Embassy of Canada to Slovakia to attend a screening of the film "It's Only the End of the World" by the Canadian director Xavier Dolan as a part of the Month of Francophonie in Bratislava and a part of the Canada 150 celebrations.
Xavier Dolan, the French-Canadian movie director, is only 28 years old and he already has six feature films in his portfolio. He won the Grand Jury Prize in Cannes last year for the movie we went to see, "It's Only the End of the World".
We're all big film buffs here at FV and we regularly organize movie nights combined with birthday celebrations, so this was a perfect opportunity to see a good movie and celebrate the birthdays of two of our favourite Foliovision ladies - the best coordinator/office manager Anicka and our project manager/programmer-to-be Naty.
