The Vancouver International Film Festival wrapped up October 9th after 16 days of amazing cinema being shown around the city. Vancouver hosted over 350 films from 70 countries around the world.
We were super thrilled to be invited to celebrate a few of the VIFF Beauty – Style in Film events. It’s always fun to watch exciting film while at the same time having a great excuse to dress up!
The films included in the Style In Film Series were:
The True Cost
Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict
Homme Less – We attended the screening of this film and also a live Q&A with the director, Thomas Wirthensolm and the film’s subject, Mark Reay.
The Royal Tailor
City of Gold
Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words
See our previous post of 8 Films You Must-See at VIFF 2015 here. Since we posted our list over a month ago, we have seen numerous reviews on films that we would have definitely included. I mean, we could’ve made a Must-See list of 100+ films! There were so many to choose from. But we had to contain ourselves and be realistic. One of the films we missed including was Beeba Boys. But we are totally excited to actually be going to a viewing tomorrow in Langley B.C. at the Colossus Theatre. It’s based on real incidents and characters of a Sikh crew determined to take over the drug and arms trade in Vancouver during the 90’s. It originally made it’s world premiere at TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) this past summer and has since gained acclaim. We’re looking forward to it!
We were invited to the wrap party on October 9th which included a screening of the film, I Saw The Light, the story of country music legend, the great Hank Williams. Then it was off to a fabulous party at the Rocky Mountaineer Station.
It was so much fun, from jello/cotton candy shots, drinks, food, interactive wall, DJ Rhiannon and Vancouver’s own rock band, Damn Fools. Amazing evening.
