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

One can find at the basis of Péloquin's paintings a multitude of particles that appear to burst and harmonize the space. Her spontaneous "explosions" give birth to energetic pathways that exceed the frames of her paintings in order to signify a world that is in perpetual change.

Exhibition runs June 30-July 9th.

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.

The Digital Moose Lounge is pleased to present our upcoming Chesterfield Chat event, part of our new "Canadians Doing Good" series.

MORE

Northern California is at the center of the national debate around immigration. Comprehensive Immigration Reform has stalled anew, and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program's termination has created uncertainty for over 700,000 Dreamers. Meanwhile, rising anti-immigrant rhetoric and ICE raids have raised fears in our local immigrant communities. But behind the headlines, nonprofit lawyers continue to provide legal assistance to immigrants facing removal or seeking asylum before administrative tribunals and California courts. Hear our panel of local Canadians involved with immigrant legal services share their insights on how the current climate has affected their practice; what they have learned about our community; and how being Canadian has shaped their outlook. 

Helen Beasley, from Oakville, Ontario, is a Managing Immigration Attorney at the Community Legal Services of East Palo Alto (CLSEPA) and an expert on Children’s Immigration law; Cristina dos Santos, from Bowen Island, BC, is a Senior Immigration Attorney at CLSEPA and an expert on Humanitarian Relief for immigrants. The panel will be moderated by David Stewart, a McGill Law alum and a Digital Moose Lounge board member and CLSEPA volunteer. After the discussion, there will a Q & A with the audience and networking with other Canadians and attendees.

Thanks to our generous sponsors for this event: British Columbia Trade and Invest and McGill University. Also special thanks to Morrison & Foerster law firm for providing the space. Light food and refreshments will be available.

ABOUT CHILDREN OF THE EARTH AND SKY

From the small coastal town of Senjan, notorious for its pirates, a young woman sets out to find vengeance for her lost family. That same spring, from the wealthy city-state of Seressa, famous for its canals and lagoon, come two very different people: a young artist traveling to the dangerous east to paint the grand khalif at his request – and possibly to do more – and a fiercely intelligent, angry woman posing as a doctor’s wife but sent by Seressa as a spy.

The trading ship that carries them is commanded by the accomplished younger son of a merchant family, ambivalent about the life he’s been born to live. And farther east a boy trains to become a soldier in the elite infantry of the khalif – to win glory in the war everyone knows is coming.

As these lives entwine, their fates – and those of many others – will hang in the balance when the khalif sends out his massive army to take the great fortress that is the gateway to the western world.


ABOUT GUY GAVRIEL KAY

Guy Gavriel Kay is the international bestselling author of twelve previous novels and a book of poetry. He has been awarded the International Goliardos Prize for his work in literature of the fantastic and won the World Fantasy Award for Ysabel in 2008. In 2014 he was named to the Order of Canada.

From the Great North to the World: New Writing from Canada

David Brower Center, Tamalpais Room - 2150 Allston Way, Berkeley CA 94704

Heather O'Neill, Madeleine Thien, Katherena Vermette, moderated by Linda Spalding

MORE

Canadian writers have long graced lists of the most beloved and critically acclaimed authors anywhere (just think Margaret Atwood, Rohinton Mistry, Michael Ondaatje). Come discover three exceptional Canadian rising stars (who also happen to be women) who have flown to us to discuss their work, including the influence of national and personal histories on it.

Heather O'Neill's "The Lonely Hearts Hotel" is a portrait of two love-struck orphans against a backdrop of circus life in the Depression era.

Madeleine Thien tackles two critical moments in China's history in her novel "Do Not Say We Have Nothing" (shortlisted for the Booker Prize): the Cultural Revolution and the protest at Tiananmen Square.

Katherena Vermette tells a complex intergenerational story that traces seemingly disparate lives as they all converge on a single tragic incident. Don't miss these brilliant new voices from up north.

Tickets to see all three writers together are available thorugh the festival website, and if you search their names on the schedule, you will see they are each also participating on additional panels with writers from other countries, including the United States.

Join us for an evening of networking with fellow McMaster alumni featuring a talk by Mac grad and world adventurer Julie Angus ’97.

Julie is an inspiring speaker who wears many hats: adventurer, scientist, bestselling author, documentary film producer, and entrepreneurial boat designer. She was the first woman to row across the Atlantic Ocean from mainland to mainland. She has also cycled across continents, rowed thousands of kilometers of coastlines and rivers, and sailed ancient Phoenician trading routes to research the olive tree. And their adventures continue, with a planned autonomous Atlantic crossing.  

It's easy to see why Explore Magazine listed Julie as one of North America’s leading adventurers and she's regularly seen in the media. 

Before becoming an adventurer, Julie studied and developed treatments for heart disease, cancer and genetic ailments. She has two undergraduate degrees with honours from McMaster University (Biology and Psychology).

Join the UC Berkeley Canadian Studies community for their monthly lecture. April's topic is Digital Resources for Blackfoot Language Documentation and Revitalization.

MORE

The April 18 talk will feature Professor Inge Genee discussing "Digital Resources for Blackfoot Language Documentation and Revitalization."

Blackfoot is an endangered Algonquian language spoken by several thousand people in Southern Alberta and Northern Montana. Most fluent speakers are now elderly and, with very few exceptions, young people no longer learn the language as a mother tongue in the home. Many community members learn some Blackfoot as a second language in school, but this does not usually produce fluent speakers. As in many other Indigenous communities across North America, awareness of this precarious situation has grown in recent years, and efforts are underway to turn the decline around.

This event is part of the UC Berkeley Canadian Studies monthly colloquium series. The lecture will begin at 2:00 p.m.

Diplomat Luncheon: NAFTA at the Negotiating Table

Diplomat Luncheon: NAFTA at the Negotiating Table

World Affairs Auditorium - 312 Sutter Street, Suite 200 San Francisco, CA 94108

How does NAFTA benefit Canada, Mexico and the United States? On March 21, Canada Consul General Rana Sarkar and Mexico Consul General Gemi Jose Gonzalez Lopez will discuss what would happen if the US withdrew from it. 

MORE

Since 1994 NAFTA, a free trade agreement between Canada, Mexico, and the US, has supported one of the world’s largest free trade areas.

The deal led to extensive economic growth in all three countries with the flow of goods and supplies generating more than $1.1 trillion in trade as of 2016. There has been a net gain of 40 million jobs, and the automobile, textile, and agriculture industries have all benefited from the accord. In particular, Mexico has helped the US auto industry remain competitive in the market, while Canada is the leading importer of US agricultural products. Despite positive impacts, the new US administration under President Trump has been critical of NAFTA, even to the point of threatening a withdrawal from the agreement.

How does NAFTA benefit Canada, Mexico, and the US collectively and why is it important for this partnership to remain in place? Are there elements of NAFTA which can be improved? If the US withdraws from the agreement, how would this move impact trade and the industries involved?

Canadian Consul General Rana Sarkar and Mexican Consul General Gemi Jose Gonzalez Lopez will give their perspectives on the trade deal.

UC Berkeley Canadian Studies Lunchtime Colloquium

223 Moses Hall - Moses Hall, UC Berkeley Campus

This event is part of the UC Berkeley Canadian Studies monthly lunchtime colloquium series. The March 22 talk will feature Professor Stephanie Ben-Ishai discussing "Millennials In Crisis: Myth Busting Millennial Debt Narratives."

MORE

The March 22 talk will feature Professor Stephanie Ben-Ishai discussing "Millennials In Crisis: Myth Busting Millennial Debt Narratives."

Intense pop-cultural commentary on millennial finances and indebtedness perpetuate two common media narratives. One narrative suggests “millennials are doomed” and that millennials face higher debt levels compounded by rising tuition costs, a lack of affordable housing, high costs of living, and an increasingly competitive job market. Counter to this narrative, the “millennial bootstrapping” narrative refutes the assertion that millennials are more financially challenged than previous generations and argues that millennials need to “pull up their bootstraps” and improve their work ethic to secure financial success.

This event is part of the UC Berkeley Canadian Studies monthly lunchtime colloquium series. Lunch will be at 12 and the lecture will begin at 12:20 p.m.

Free.

MORE

March's lecture will be Intergenerational Income Mobility in Canada and the United States, with speaker Marie Connolly, from the Université du Québec à Montréal.

Intergenerational mobility is about twice as great in Canada than in the United States, but varies significantly within each country. Our sub-national analysis of six different indicators finds that the national border only partially distinguishes the close to one thousand regions we analyze within these two countries. The Canada-US border clearly divides Central and Eastern Canada from the Great Lakes regions and the Northeast of the United States. But these differences drive only part of the national differences in mobility. While some Canadian regions have more in common with the low mobility southern parts of the United States than with the rest of Canada, the fact that they represent a much smaller fraction of population is the other reason why overall mobility is lower in the United States.

This event is part of the UC Berkeley Canadian Studies monthly lunchtime colloquium series. Lunch will be at 12 and the lecture will begin at 12:20 p.m.

Free.

Beloved maestro and former Berkeley Symphony music director Kent Nagano leads the Montreal Symphony Orchestra in a dynamic program of early 20th-century works, including Debussy's sprightly Jeux and Stravinsky's towering The Rite of Spring, composed within a year of each other for Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes.

Pianist Daniil Trifonov joins the full-bodied orchestra for Prokofiev's emotionally expansive third piano concerto, a work he has performed to acclaim: "he offered far more than mere virtuosity ... Trifonov demonstrated an elegant touch and witty grace in more lighthearted moments and poetic insight in more introspective passages" (The New York Times).

Bay Area International Children's Film Festival

Bay Area International Children's Film Festival

Chabot Space & Science Center in Oakland - 10000 Skyline Boulevard Oakland, Ca 94619

Canadian Films will be a major feature at the Bay Area International Children's Film Festival (BAICFF), the much beloved Bay Area children's film festival, celebrating its 10th Anniversary, February 23-25, 2018. This special Playdate for the Imagination™ is a weekend filled with family friendly films from around the globe (did we mention all the Canadian content?!) and hands on animation and filmmaking workshops for our youngest artists.

MORE

BAICFF is working closely with the NFB , the National Film Board of Canada, recognized the world over as one of the great cultural laboratories for innovation.  For 10 years we have shown at least one NFB short in its programing without any demands or fees from the NFB. They have always been a pleasure to collaborate with and we are honored to continue the partnership in years to come. 

This year we expanded our Canadian slate of films, and it seems the Festival will be very Canada-centric for our 10th anniversary! 

Just nominated for a 2018 Oscar for Best Animated Feature, Stuart Shankly will also be joining us from Toronto, the renowned Canadian animated filmmaker and Assistant Director of the highly acclaimed animated film, The Breadwinner. Stuart will be joining us for the weekend and to take part in a Q&A following the film.

The line-up of Canadian films, and a block of shorts including two BAY AREA PREMIERES includes:

 
The Sunrise Storyteller by Kasha Sequoia Slavner, 1:04:25, Canada, 2016
The Sunrise Storyteller follows the hero’s journey of teenage filmmaker & social justice advocate, Kasha Sequoia Slavner, as she sets out for six months on her 16th birthday across the world in search of stories of hope and resilience that shine a light on what it means to be a global citizen and how we can all make a difference.
 
Anthems : A Journey Around the World by Stephanie Dieter, 39’55, Canada, 2017
10-year old Canadian singer and Guinness World Record-holder Capri Everitt embarks on a unique journey with her family to 80 countries where she sings the national anthem of each country in the national language in an effort to raise money and awareness for orphaned and abandoned children around the world 
The Magic of Anansi by Jamie Mason, 6′, Canada, 2001
Anansi the spider is tired of being looked down on by all the jungle animals–just because his webs don’t catch bugs.
The Mountain of SGaana by Christopher Auchter, 10’02, Canada, 2017
A magical tale of a young man who is stolen away to the spirit world, and the young woman who rescues him. Haida filmmaker Christopher Auchter’s dream-like gem brilliantly entwines traditional animation with formal elements of Haida art.
How Dinosaurs Learned to Fly *BAICFF Children’s Choice Winner 2013* by Munro Ferguson, 5′ 58, Canada, 1995
The dinosaurs were headed for trouble. They ate nothing but junk food. They never brushed their teeth. They stayed up all night long. And although they loved to jump off cliffs, they didn’t like landing. The early mammals tried to warn them, “You’ll all be extinct if you keep that up!” 
Hedgehog’s Home by Eva Cvijanovic, 10′, Canada, 2017
In a lush and lively forest lives a hedgehog. He is at once admired, respected and envied by the other animals. However, Hedgehog’s unwavering devotion to his home annoys and mystifies a quartet of insatiable beasts: a cunning fox, an angry wolf, a gluttonous bear and a muddy boar.

MORE

Juno Award-nominated duo Kacy and Clayton are coming to San Francisco and will be playing selections from their latest album, Strange Country.

More:

The music of Kacy and Clayton exists outside of time, and burgeons with beautiful contradictions. It’s psychedelic and traditional, contemporary and vintage, melancholic and joyous. All at once, it showcases a slightly psych-folk sound of Linda Perhacs, Fleet Foxes, and First Aid Kit; rare country blues records and English folk tunes; and 1920s disaster songs and murder ballads. Their songs often are sugar-coated pills, tales of murderous jealousy, dilapidated graveyards, and infanticide, all delivered with Kacy Anderson’s sweet, lithe voice, and Clayton Linthicum’s hypnotic fingerpicking.

$10 in Advance // $12 at the Door.

Dr. Omond Solandt became a venerated voice on military and science affairs just when fears of atomic and then thermonuclear war rose in global consciousness. His experience gave way to a view on war, weapons, and the reality of the atomic age that was rational, clear, and rooted in his belief in the power of rational actors to make good on the world. As the destructive yield of thermonuclear weapons grew, however, his attitude changed while American counterparts like Herman Khan would later contemplate the realities of full-bore nuclear warfare as a policy option. So, was Solandt more Mr. Spock than Dr, Strangelove? Dr. Jason S. Ridler, author of Maestro of Science, will explore Solandt's unique personality and role as an early expert on atomic weapons.

Canadian Women's Club Monthly Lunchtime Lecture

Presidio Golf & Concordia Club - 8 Presidio Terrace, San Francisco, CA

The Canadian Women's Club meets monthly for a lecture and lunch in the Presidio in San Francisco.

MORE

October's program features journalist Therese Poletti presentating about "Grand Emporiums of Old San Francisco.”  Ms. Poletti’s presentation will take us back in time to the old and wonderful department stores we can all reminisce about – The White House and I Magnin, for example.  Come and be entertained!  And see great photos of San Francisco and the older department stores many years ago.

Therese Poletti has been a journalist for over twenty years, mostly writing about business, finance and technology.  In her off hours, Poletti can also be found giving architectural walking tours as a volunteer for San Francisco City Guides, which is how she became inspired by the work of Timothy Pflueger, one of the city's forgotten architectural geniuses, and subject of her first book, “Art Deco San Francisco: The Architecture of Timothy Pflueger” 1st Edition, which will be available for sale at the meeting.

Social hour 11 a.m. Lunch 12 noon.

Join the UC Berkeley Canadian Studies community for their regular lunchtime colloquium series. This lecture's topic is Using Captain Vancouver’s Voyage To Examine What Is Accomplished By Reconsidering And Rewriting The Past, by Prof. Lee Gulyas of Western Washington University.

This talk regards the earliest mapmakers, “Whose imaginations were usually more reliable than their sources,” and how they portrayed what would become Canada as an amorphous blob of unknown dangers. Everything west of the Atlantic was imagined and scrawled in, worthy of exploration only for either gold or the legendary Strait of Anian/Northwest Passage. In 1791, Captain George Vancouver’s four-and-a-half year expedition to map the Pacific coast of the North American continent changed the course of history for Europe, the Americas, and the indigenous nations. Yet Canada is still very much a blend of fact and fiction. As we consider the narrativization of history in Canadian literature, we will be doing our own mapping by examining history alongside two literary works that are fascinating by their merit and strategies in their own right, but also raise important questions about history, gender, ethnicity, place, work, justice, politics, and regionalism. These works explore landscape, imagination, and identity to point to larger questions of history, story, and what is accomplished by reconsidering and rewriting the past.  

Speaker Lee Gulyas is a Senior Lecturer in the English Department and affiliated faculty in Canadian-American Studies at Western Washington University. 

Free and open to the public!
