Brian began his career in growth and performance marketing in 1999 at the start-up ACDSee, where he first started “figuring out that search engine thing”, growing e-commerce, and providing analytics. He has since gone on to lead demand generation and e-commerce for DivX, the digital video technology company, and then led SEO and Growth functions for the travel start-up “Uptake”, which later sold to Groupon. Since 2010 he has been at Facebook, where he is Vice President of the Product Growth team, which partners with engineering teams across Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp and Messenger using data and experimentation to drive growth of app adoption and engagement.

On Tuesday, September 10th, the wait will be over….The Testaments, Margaret Atwood’s highly anticipated sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, is revealed. The momentous literary event will be celebrated with an exclusive live cinema broadcast, as Fane Productions present an evening with the Canadian novelist, poet, literary critic and inventor.

The publication of Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale in 1985 and the current, Emmy Award-winning television series have created a cultural phenomenon, as handmaids have become a symbol of women’s rights and a protest against misogyny and oppression. Live from the London stage, Atwood will be interviewed by broadcaster and author Samira Ahmed in a conversation spanning the length of Atwood’s remarkable career, her diverse range of works, and why she has returned to her seminal handmaid story, 34 years later.

With exclusive readings from the new book by special guests, this will be an unmissable and intimate event with Atwood, spotlighting her signature insight, humour and intellect.

17th Annual International Ocean Film Festival

17th Annual International Ocean Film Festival

The Canadian Consulate in San Francisco is supporting the 17th Annual International Ocean Film Festival from July 30th to August 9th.

MORE

The mission of the International Ocean Film Festival (IOFF) is to save our oceans one film at a time.

This year, two Canadian films will be featured virtually.

The Mill 

52 minutes

IOFF Environmental Award Winner - West Coast Premiere

Near a First Nations community in Nova Scotia, a paper mill had to stop in January the discharging of waste into noxious ponds that polluted both air and water for decades. The company proposed piping its effluent into the ocean, but met strong opposition from both the native community and fisherfolk. If the mill closes, others will also, putting over 10,000 jobs at risk. Resolving such conflicts is becoming a challenging worldwide problem.

Under Thin Ice

98 minutes

Extreme divers, Jill Heinerth and Mario Cyr, explore above and below northern Canada’s ice sheet. It is a hunting ground for beluga whales and narwhals, for walruses and seals that depend on the ice to nurture their young, and for polar bears who live on the ice most of their lives. They all feed on a plethora of sea life, but as the ice melts more each year, their entire ecosystem has come under threat.

Commemoration Day Sunrise Ceremony

Commemoration Day Sunrise Ceremony

Honour the Battle of the Somme with a sunrise ceremony tradition, hosted by US Branch #25 of the Royal Canadian Legion, representing the San Francisco Bay Area.

MORE

While the first day of July is a celebration in most of Canada, for Newfoundland and Labrador it is also a day for sombre remembrance as it is also Commemoration Day (also known as Memorial Day), when we remember the tragically destructive events of July 1st, 1916.

It is the opening day of the Battle of the Somme, when 806 members of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment climbed out of their trenches and went "over the top" at 8:45am as part of the battle of Beaumont-Hamel. In less than an hour, the regiment was devastated, most killed or wounded within the first 20 minutes of the battle. The next morning, only 68 soldiers answered roll call. Commemoration Day was established in 1917, just one year later.

After Confederation with Canada, the province of Newfoundland and Labrador continued the tradition of Commemoration Day during the morning of July 1st, and reserved the remainder of the day to celebrate Canada Day. 

The 45 minutes service will be broadcast on Zoom. 

RSVP here for live sunrise ceremony at 6am PST. 

RSVP here for replay at 10am PST.

Red Violin, with Composer Joshua Bell, and live orchestra (and Canadian Director, François Girard) at Festival Napa Valley

Red Violin, with Composer Joshua Bell, and live orchestra (and Canadian Director, François Girard) at Festival Napa Valley

First Republic Bank Stage at Lincoln Theater

World Premiere! Joshua Bell performs the Red Violin with live orchestra while film is screened. Special appearance by the Red Violin's director, Canadian filmmaker François Girard.

MORE

Arguably the world’s most famous violinist, Joshua Bell returns to Festival Napa Valley to perform the beautiful music he recorded for the Academy Award-winning 1998 film, The Red Violin. Audiences will enjoy a truly immersive experience: watching the gripping film on screen while, for the first time, Bell performs composer John Corigliano’s lush, Oscar-winning score in its entirety with orchestra.

The Red Violin follows a mysterious antique violin as it travels through four centuries, impacting all who come in contact with it — from its creation by a legendary violinmaker in 1681 Cremona, Italy — to a present-day auction house, where it draws the eye of an expert appraiser (played by Samuel L. Jackson). Festival Orchestra NAPA performs with Bell under the baton of esteemed conductor Michael Stern. Making tonight’s concert particularly special is the appearance of the film’s director, Canadian filmmaker François Girard, and Corigliano, who celebrates his 80th birthday this year.

Tickets required.

Dawson City: Frozen in Time at the SF Silent Film Festival

Dawson City: Frozen in Time at the SF Silent Film Festival

The Roxie Theater - 3117 16th Street, San Francisco

See footage from a trove of 500 films lost after burial in the permafrost in the 1929. Co-presented by the San Francisco Silent Film Festival.

MORE

This meditation on cinema’s past from Decasia director Bill Morrison pieces together the bizarre true history of a long-lost collection of 533 nitrate film prints from the early 1900s. Located just south of the Arctic Circle, Dawson City was settled in 1896 and became the center of the Canadian Gold Rush that brought 100,000 prospectors to the area. It was also the final stop for a distribution chain that sent prints and newsreels to the Yukon. The films were seldom, if ever, returned. The now-famous Dawson City Collection was uncovered in 1978 when a bulldozer working its way through a parking lot dug up a horde of film cans. Morrison draws on these permafrost-protected, rare silent films and newsreels, pairing them with archival footage, interviews, historical photographs, and an enigmatic score by Sigur Rós collaborator and composer Alex Somers. Dawson City: Frozen Time depicts the unique history of this Canadian Gold Rush town by chronicling the life cycle of a singular film collection through its exile, burial, rediscovery, and salvation.

From the band:

Our album "Perfect Strangers" peaked at #10 on the iTunes new jazz releases best-seller list and has received favourable reviews around the Bay Area and on blogs. The album was recorded primarily at Phase One Studios in Toronto (6 of 11 songs), with Toronto musicians and producers. One of the tracks is a French-English song co-written with another Canadian songwriter. Our first music video was shot entirely in Toronto. Although I am now based in the Bay Area, we love going to Toronto to make music and do so every year. We will be playing songs from the album, some new material and some covers. You can watch our videos and stream the full album for free on our website www.23rdhr.com

Join U of T Engineering Alumni & Friends on June 23 for their latest California BizSkule event: Deep Genomics: Using Machine Learning to Enable Genomic Medicine with professor Brendan Frey. 

Deep learning will transform medicine, but not in the way that many advocates think. Biological complexity, rare mutations and confounding factors work against us, so that even if we sequence 100,000 genomes, it won't be enough. Professor Frey will present the “genotype-phenotype gap” and how the value of closing this gap exceeds Google's $200B ad market. Using machine learning systems that properly incorporate biological knowledge, professor Frey will describe this approach, how it has improved our ability to “read the genome”, and could be an indispensable component in the future of medicine. 

Gain insights from one of U of T's most enterprising professors on the future of machine learning and medicine, as well as a chance to network with fellow U of T grads over cocktails and canapés.
