3:00PM GOOD VIBRATIONS @The Woodward Theater

This block of musically-inclined films is sure to make your afternoon! 

MASTERS OF RESONANCE opens up as our first festival feature film.

A journey from the Forest, to the Stage... 
Stars collide as John Good (known as the 'Wood Whisperer') crafts one of the most epic drum-sets of all time: The R40 played by Neil Peart on their final tour, made from a Romanian Bog Oak that is over 1500 years old!

Through the eyes of some of the world’s most inspirational drummers (Neil Peart, John “JR” Robinson, Duncan Phillips, Tommy Clufetos, Blair Sinta, Cobus Potgieter, Mona Tavakoli, Paul Wertico and many more) we peel back the curtain on the art of drum-making. Experience the interplay between Maker and Artist that blends the science and passion into crafting one of the world’s most powerful instruments. Retrace the footsteps of humble beginnings for DW drums with Jeremy Bout (Edge Factor), that ultimately lead to the pivotal discovery that revolutionized the world of drumming forever!

Please note this block also includes the short films HIDE AND SEEK and OUTBURST.

Single screen passes are $10 to this screening, and online here by selecting "GOOD VIBRATIONS". Passholders do not need to purchase an additional ticket.
