Vancouver housing crisis film at NFF

The Northwest Film Forum will present the Seattle premiere of a documentary titled “Vancouver: No Fixed Address” about the British Columbia city's housing crisis at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 22 at 1515 12th Ave. in Seattle.

Charles Wilkinson's documentary looks at Vancouver as a city of contrasts. It's a thriving, affluent metropolis that is consistently rated one of the top cities in the world to live in, yet it is facing a housing crisis and rampant homelessness.

The market has churned out new housing for wealthy transplants, but that leaves many long-term residents, young people, and vulnerable people struggling to find affordable housing.

The documentary is part of the Local Sightings Film Festival 2018.

Tickets are $12, or $7 for members. Buy them at https://tinyurl.com/y8s2fuz6/.
