With the rainy season again upon us, it's time, once again, to take shelter inside the Vanouver International Film Festival. Now in it's 36th year, the VIFF returns with another phenomenal selection of features from home and abroad, along with festival hits from Cannes, TIFF, Sundance and Venice, all of it beginning on September 28th with a gala screening on Mina Shum's Chinatown-set Meditatioon Park.
There is no question that VIFF is a heavy hitter, with more than 140,000 film fans enjoying 380 movies screened during the 16 day festival.
Where most film festivals seem to about more about celebrities walking red carpets, VIFF is staged for those that love and make films. Enjoy!
