Tales of Hollywood North

Coming January 25th, 2017

“X Files” producer Bob Goodwin will chat about the Vancouver Movie Boom and More

Vancouver is featured under other city names in hundreds of movies.  What makes this city to the north such a mecca for film and so easy to be a stand in for other places?  Mr. Goodwin and our moderator Kate Blystone will discuss this phenomenon as well as Mr. Goodwin’s experiences in his long career as a film producer.

R.W. “Bob” Goodwin is an award winning executive producer and director of critically acclaimed television shows like the “The X-Files” and “life goes on”. In a career spanning three decades, he has amassed five Emmy nominations and three Golden Globe awards for his work. He and his wife Sheila Larkin moved to the Bellingham area in 1993.
