As the go-to location for cable SF and fantasy series, Vancouver has a lot of ties to pop culture. But one of the more lesser known facets of the city is its ties to brony culture - that is, adult male fans of the animated children’s show, My Little Pony.
In A Brony Tale, which screens at this years DOXA Documentary Film Festival, you’ll find out more than you’d ever wanted to know about this subculture. But if bronies aren’t your scene – or even if they are – there’s still plenty of other fare to tickle your fancy at this year’s DOXA Documentary Film Festival (May 2-11).
All told, there are more than 90 films and 78 screenings at this year’s DOXA. Here are some of the films we think look particularly illuminating, crowd-pleasing, inspiring or just plain weird.
