Making the Move: Meet Our New Housemates
July 02, 2014
Collaboration and cross-pollination is fundamental to the arts, not just in Vancouver, but intrinsically in the spirit of all artistic practice. Relationships of this nature are what the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival’s business is built on, so it is only natural for us to move in with some of our cherished cultural partners in the city.
Following our outgoing Managing Director Minna Schendlinger’s update last month about the PuSh Festival’s move to the City of Vancouver’s Cultural Amenity space at the CBC Vancouver Broadcast Centre, we thought we would properly introduce readers to our new co-location partners. Follow the PuSh Festival blog as we bring you updates on ‘Making the Move’ to our new 8,477 square foot cultural arts co-location space in downtown Vancouver.
“When the opportunity of the co-location came up, for us it was not just an opportunity to work with people we really respect and like, but a great opportunity to be in a space sharing best practices artistically and in business.”– Alfredo Santa Ana, General Manager

The DOXA Documentary Film Festival is a new collaborator with the PuSh Festival. Having cross-pollinated several of each others’ events as community partners, the time is ripe for the PuSh Festival to share resources with a burgeoning Vancouver film festival. The DOXA Documentary Film Festival Society is devoted to curating a juried festival of independent and innovative documentaries to Vancouver audiences, while educating the public about documentary film as an art form. Comprised of public screenings, panel discussions, public forums and educational programs, the DOXA Documentary Film Festival takes place in May each year.
