More Guests Announced…

Northwest Fan Fest is happy to announce more guests added to our lineup for 2015!

Uwe Boll is a German director, producer and screenwriter, who is best known for loosely adapting video games into movies including House of the Dead, Alone in the Dark, Alone in the Dark II, BloodRayne, BloodRayne II: Deliverance, BloodRayne: The Third Reich, In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, Postal, and Far Cry. He finances his own films through his Boll KG and Event Film Productions production companies. Many of his grindhouse-type films are produced on low budgets and are routinely a favourite target for Internet critics.

The Gentlemen Hecklers provide live, hilarious commentary for the best bad movies! Sit with Vancouver’s masters of movie riffing and join the Gentlemen at Northwest Fan Fest as they take a gander at, perhaps, the ultimate in cinematic sci-fi camp: Ed Wood’s PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE, starring Bela Lugosi and Vampira.

Geekenders is a Vancouver theatre troupe celebrating alternative beauty and pop culture and producing Vegas-style nerdy spectaculars, plays, events, and dances. Their shows, described as “geeky fun meets Moulin Rouge and the Muppet Show,” have drawn thousands of audience members over the last two years to shows ranging from a send-up of The Wizard of Oz to a cabaret-style show exploring the world of Doctor Who. The performers have entertained over 6,000 people at their sold-out Star Wars shows (“A Nude Hope,” “The Empire Strips Back” and “Reveal of the Jedi”.)

Stay tuned for more guest announcements!

Costume Contest Winners

First off, a big thank you to everyone who attended and participated in this year’s Costume Contest. You’ve helped make it the biggest costume contest of British Columbia, and we couldn’t be more proud!

Also, thanks to our wonderful emcee Aaron and his company Morrismore Production House who have now hosted our contest two years in a row.

Our judges this year were Strikes-Twice, a talented cosplayer who has won numerous awards for her craftsmanship, and Armed and Dangerous, a local duo who specialize in armor building. The entrants this year were all extremely talented and gave our judges quite a challenge.
