KIGGINS THEATRE To Host Archaeology Film SeriesFour-part, Archaeology and Indigenous Peoples series begins June 8. (May 24, 2004)
In July 2003, The Archaeology Channel International Film and Video Festival, screened twenty films from ten countries in front of a live audience at the McDonald Theatre in Eugene, Oregon. This was the first competitive archaeological film and video festival to be held in North America. The mission of this festival was, and continues to be, to exhibit for the audience the wonderful diversity of human cultures past and present in the exploration of our place in history and in our world. This festival was created by Dr. Richard Pettigrew to promote the genre and the makers of film and video productions about archaeology and indigenous peoples.
The creativity and uniqueness of this film series has inspired Gary Hubbard, owner of the KIGGINS THEATRE, to bring Pettigrew's film and video series to the Portland/Vancouver area. The KIGGINS THEATRE, http://www.kiggins.com, is honored to host the Archaeology Film Series, Best of 2003. This four-part series highlighting Archaeology and Indigenous Peoples will begin on Tuesday June 8, 2004 and be shown every Tuesday evening in June from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The Master of Ceremonies for all of the 4 entertaining and educational evenings will be Dr. Pettigrew. The KIGGINS THEATRE is located at 1011 Main Street Vancouver, WA. Tickets for this event are $6.00 each evening and can be purchased at the theatre box office on the night of the film series.
A one-minute streamed clip of each film selected for the series is available for viewing at the TAC Festival 2003 web page, http://www.archaeologychannel.org/content/TACfestival2003.shtml.
