Reel Causes & Vancity theatre/VIFF proudly present
"The waiting room"

Vancity Theatre, March 14th - 8:20 PM


The Waiting Room is a character-driven documentary film that uses extraordinary access to go behind the doors of an American public hospital struggling to care for a community of largely uninsured patients. The film – using a blend of cinema verité and characters’ voiceover – offers a raw, intimate, and even uplifting look at how patients, staff and caregivers each cope with disease, bureaucracy and hard choices.

Reel Causes is a registered BC non-profit society that organizes screenings of high quality film events at Vancity Theatre & SFU every month. Net proceeds raised through ticket sales support different local charities focused on poverty, disease, environment, health & social issues. Reel Causes also supports Canadian cinema and local artists through its events. Curious about us? See
