Rewind This! 

Directed by Josh Johnson (Imperial PolyFarm)


This documentary profiles the history of VHS and examines how this revolutionary format changed the world. Rewind This! combines interviews with directors, producers, film critics, archivists, VHS collectors and video store owners to study the the impact of video tape on movie culture. No longer dependent on the neighbourhood theatre or drive-in, the proliferation of VHS throughout the 1980s and 1990s democratized cinema. VHS allowed movie-watchers to bring the experience into their living rooms, sleepovers and Saturday mornings. Movies became accessible in a way that defined the viewing habits of each subsequent generation. Appearances by Halifax filmmakers Jason Eisener and Rob Cotterill, make Rewind This! a special viewing experience for locals. This thoroughly entertaining and provocative documentary will meet all your nostalgic needs and leave you thinking about the future of physical media.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
