In 2005, two local filmmakers produced a feature-length film based on the classic Canadian children’s book Jacob Two Two Meets The Hooded Fang by Mordecai Richler. The filmmakers intended to give children an introduction to filmmaking.  

The film featured over fifty school kids and host of local Bowen personalities and was shot at many recognizable locations around the island. This project was a huge success thanks to support and contributions from the Bowen community, including the Thompson family and their son Kipp (Jacob Two Two) who sadly passed away recently.

As a tribute to Kipp and the entire family there will be a one-night-only return engagement screening of the film on Saturday, Jan. 12 at 4 p.m. in the Bowen Island Community School gym, where it originally played to a packed house.  

Entry is by donation and per the family’s wishes, 100 per cent of the proceeds will go to supporting Bowen youth pursuing a career in the arts.
