The film is among those that will be shown during the short-film program that starts at 4 p.m. at Vancouver’s iconic Rio Theatre (1660 East Broadway).

Margot’s Period centres around a young woman named Margot, who experiences the horrors of getting her first period at a holiday party.

The film – rated 18A – was directed and written by Han Bridge, shot in Tsawwassen and features young Tsawwassen actors Shelby Satterthwaite (who plays Margot) and Mack Dobb (playing Cult Sister Sue).

The film will be playing alongside well-known classic and contemporary films such as John Carpenter’s The Fog, Lars von Trier’s The House That Jack Built, and Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria.

The Rio Grind Film Festival features international horror, sci fi, thriller, action, fantasy, cult and grind-house features and short films traditionally overlooked by the regular festival circuit.
