Graham Peat, owner of Soul Food's beloved Videomatica, sends us this...

Dear friends;

I invite you to attend the 2nd Touched by Tibet film series, which runs Friday June 12 to Monday June 15 at the VIFC/Vancity Theatre (the most comfortable and modern theatre in town).
The very best new films or Tibet and Buddhism are featured this year and we offer talks by guest musicians, speakers and film directors at many performances. The large lobby will have Tibet-related and human rights groups displays and sales.
