Many years ago, when I was a student at UBC, I heard through the grapevine about a fellow student who was both a Christian and a budding young filmmaker. I even saw one or two of his student films at the annual student-film show. But it wasn’t until a month ago or so that I finally met him, at the press conference for the Vancouver International Film Festival. His name was Rob Kirbyson, and it turns out one of his short films, Ctrl Z (2007), played at the VIFF this week as part of the shorts program The Obstacles Were Everywhere. The film in question also happens to be online, and I think it’s a hoot. Check it out for yourself:
