SFU: The Next Step

Item is a narrated, promotional film produced by Yaletown Productions Inc. for SFU. Provides a general overview of SFU, its students, programs and location, with an emphasis on SFU as a global university, noting that 'what's happening in the outside world is what's happening here.' Includes sound bites from classrooms and lectures, and closes with pipe band performing and stills of Convocation Mall. Similar in thrust to the 1986 film, "Simon Fraser University: Meeting the Challenge Together." Also features early SFU footage seen in the 1983 "SFU Liaison Program" film (See F-85, Office of the Registrar fonds).


Directed by Glenn Kirchner, with contributions by Al Byers, Elizabeth Carefoot, Wayne Carr, and Chris Hildred.

Divine Comedy in Castlegar

"Tom McGauley, formerly a student at SFU, has returned to his home town in the Kootenays, working as postman and viewing life through the eyes of a poet. Through Tom's friend, seventy-eight year old George Padowinikoff, we get a glimpse of Doukhobor history, which is so much a part of the life in Castlegar. The main thrust of the film is to present the totality of "heaven, hell, and purgatory" that is anybody's life." []

This is Simon Fraser University

Item is a film featuring the sights and sounds of all aspects of attending SFU in early 1970s, from the bus ride to registration to lectures, lunch, and leisure. Current research, issues of the day and the various departments are presented through original lecture audio. Impressions of SFU by students and staff are revealed in interview-style discussion, coupled with thoughtfully shot footage. Interspersed are artistically shot scenes of a sunny campus with a gentle guitar strum. Unlike more contemporary moving image profiles created by SFU, it is not narrated with a script nor overtly promotional.
