Don’t worry, this isn’t about the controversial opening gala. Let’s stay positive here. Last night, I celebrated the opening of our city’s little film fest by garbling down some insanely delicious green macaroons (above) and mingling about with members of our film industry.
My lovely +1, singer/songwriter Kristie Yung, and I hopped over to Robson for a packed crowd at CinCin. It was ridiculous how full it was. It was like a sauna in there. I quickly spotted Mayor Gregor Robertson and a ton of character actors from local productions.
We met up with one of my favourite people, the wildly ferocious Cyndi Hunter (left). It seemed like everyone was there to celebrate our vibrant film community.
The event was presented by Brightlight Pictures and The Bridge Studios, welcoming the diverse talent and hardworking film professionals. I am an unabashed film lover and snob, taking in everything from low budget independent fare to big budgest blockbusters and Canadian content.
Cyndi, Kristie and I mingled about, taking in the wine, oysters, fine desserts, and much more, talking up all the local production and entertainment professionals, discovering new aspects of the industries’ workings and moving parts.
I had a blast celebrating the start of VIFF and expect to take in much more of the festivities this weekend into week. V.I.A. is a proud gold sponsor for the festival, showcasing some great local and international talent. Check it out.
