Thursday, July 24, 2008 was declared "X Files Day" in Vancouver, as creator Chris Carter screened his newest Vancouver-lensed feature "X Files: I Want To Believe" @ The Scotiabank Theatre on Burrard.

"You can come home again," Carter said about Vancouver, production home of the long-running sci-fi TV series, that shot here from 1993 to 1998, before moving to Los Angeles.

"We came back here because this is where we had made our mark and this is where it all started," he said.

"We wanted to come back and see if we could put the band back together, so to speak."

At the screening, Vancouver Mayor Sam Sullivan declared the day as "X Files Day" with BC Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Joan McIntyre making a special presentation to Carter on behalf of the province, recognizing his contributions to the Vancouver film industry.

Carter and co-writer/producer Frank Spotnitz said they were thrilled to reconnect with many of the original crew for the filming of the new feature.

Carter said that he started his early career in film working in Vancouver, praising the city for its willingnesss to be in on the 'conspiracy' of silence surrounding the filming of the movie, titled "Done One" on the UBCP Film Production List.

My personal thanks to Chris Carter for allowing me the opportunity to appear for 2 days in "X Files: I Want To Believe", playing a 'Boardroom Doctor', during a tense scene in a Catholic Hospital alongside co-star, actress Gillian 'Dr. Dana Scully' Anderson...
