Space Trucker Bruce is sci-fi comedy feature film. It was created over six years with a budget of $10,000. All the sets were built in the film maker’s house and back yard

Description from spacetruckerbruce.com:

In the near future, a breakthrough in gravity control allows inexpensive access to space.Bruce is a trucker who works the hog fat lines between Earth and the Titan Station. He’s content with his life but a bit lonely. A month away from the Titan Station Bruce picks up Max, an easily bored automation engineer with a broken shuttle. As Max is about to go crazy from space boredom they receive a strange distress call. Soon they discover a huge dark object on a collision course. Bruce and Max must risk everything to survive their deadly encounter and deliver the hog fat.

A free “sneak preview” of Greg Chaney’s latest documentary “Life on Ice” will be showing at Centennial Hall.  “Life on Ice” was filmed on the Malaspina Glacier following the adventure of Erin McKittrick and Hig Higman travelling with a baby and a toddler in the wilderness for two months.

It’s 15 minutes and will show before Erin McKittrick gives a presentation about her new book.

“Life on Ice” will have its world premiere at the Banff Film Festival on October 26.
