THIS IS THE REMIX : VANCOUVER TO HOST ITS SECOND INTERNATIONAL HIP HOP FILM FESTIVAL

Montral, September 7th 2005 From September 14th 18th, Vancouver
will unroll the red carpet to
welcome a brochette of films and documentaries from around the world
during the second edition of
VIHF, the Vancouver International Hip Hop Film Festival.

The Hip Hop Film genre, though very much representative of global
social, economical, political and
artistic realities, is still struggling to find podiums. VIHFs
objective is to give these film
jewels, a niche in Canada as they have found in such cities as Sydney,
Melbourne, New York and
Atlanta where International Hip Hop Film festivals are also held.

This year, films & documentaries from Japan, Cuba, the United States
and Israel, amongst others,
will go beyond the music and use Hip Hop Culture as the vehicle for
messages & points of views.
Canada will be represented with such documentaries as 4Real:Kenya by
Vancouvers Sol Guy. The
30-minute documentary follows fellow Canadian KNaan on a return trip
to Africa.

Other goodies at this years Event include the presence of film
directors
Lisandro PeresRey (from Cubas "La Fabri_K"),
Sharmin MacKay (from South Africas "Definition of Freedom") & Kevin
Fitzgerald (from the USAs
Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme)

The VIHF Organizers are also responsible for the Montral edition of
the festival. Last Mays
International du Cinma Hip Hop de Montral had its first edition and
also presented the
critically acclaimed accompanying compilation album, featuring an
all-Canadian guest list of Hip
Hop influenced musical artists, merging the genre to Latin, Electro,
Rap and R n b beats. The
album, already available in stores, will also be for sale at the
Vancouver Festival site.

All screenings will be held at Video Monster, 36 Powell Street and
tickets will be available on site
and at Vinyl Records, 319 West Hasting, Vancouver.

A complete list of films & documentaries as well as info for members of
the media can be found on
the Festivals website: www.vihf.com
