“The Grizzlie Truth”: Film Screening and Q&A with Artist in Residence Kathleen Jayme

March 30, 2023 @ 6:45 pm - 9:30 pm


Thursday, March 30
6:45 pm – Reception
7:30 pm – Film Screening
RBC Cinema at The Chan

Join UBC Theatre & Film for a FREE film screening and Q&A with our 2022/23 Phil Lind Multicultural Artist in Residence, Kathleen Jayme (BFA ’11)!

To die-hard fans of ill-fated NBA franchise, the Vancouver Grizzlies, the team’s abrupt move to Memphis in 2001 is much more than a sore spot, it’s an unsolved mystery and possibly a criminal conspiracy. What begins as superfan-turned filmmaker Kat Jayme’s investigation into her hometown team’s disappearance, becomes a love letter to the worst professional sports franchise in history, and an exploration of the deep roots of fandom. Watch the trailer here!

After the screening, you’ll have the opportunity to hear directly from Kat herself during a Q&A—learn more about her creative process, her experience making the film, and the fascinating stories she uncovered along the way. Whether you’re a Grizzlies fan or simply love great filmmaking, this event is not to be missed!

Free to attend with registration.
