The First CINELATION Retrospective is Happening

by Christopher Beaubien • December 06, 2023 • Start the Discussion!

With the support of the Cineworks Independent Filmmakers Society, I will be screening three of my favourite short films together for the first time on the big screen next Tuesday, December 12th. These macabre works include Bridge No. 29, Socket and the award-winning Siren.

The First CINELATION Retrospective will celebrate the last ten years I have worked diligently as an independent filmmaker with a great assortment of talented and dedicated artists. I hope you will brave the cold to enjoy a rare opportunity to experience these three films.

The Black Box Studio is located at 300 – 1131 Howe Street behind the Cinematheque. Since the entrance is down a back alley, I encourage you to bring a friend.

The First CINELATION Retrospective takes place on December 12th at 6:30pm.

SOCKET (2016) – The Newly Restored Version

by Christopher Beaubien • June 04, 2022 • Start the Discussion!

During the pandemic one of my side projects was to produce a new restoration of “Socket.” The movie now includes a more detailed and refined color correction, new visual and sound effects as well as a few more subtle improvements to the edit. The picture has also been reformatted into a 1.66:1 aspect ratio, otherwise known as the European widescreen standard.

I hope you enjoy it.
