It has finally arrived! Vancouver’s largest film festival (and also one of the largest in the world), kicks off tonight with an Opening Gala screening of John Crowley’s Brooklyn (trailer) which has been breaking hearts all over the festival circuit the last few weeks. Following that gala, VIFF will soldier along with two weeks of movies including festival favourites from the past year, a wide ranging selection of docs, a splatter of genre films and a fully loaded program of both Canadian and locally made films.
With so much to choose from, I enlisted the help of After the Credits sometimes-Festival Correspondent and The Green Screen of Death co-host Bill Harris (@soundjam69), to chat about some of the movies we’re looking forward to, along with weighing in on a couple of festival movies we’ve already seen.
And bonus: we share some quick thoughts (more like unabashed praise) for The Martian (trailer).
The Vancouver International Film Festival runs September 24 to October 9. For full listing of films and tickets, visit the official website.
For up-to-the-moment updates from the festival, be sure to follow us on twitter. Bill is at @soundjam69 and I’m at @themarina.

Absolutely Stellar VIFF logo this year. Kudos to the designer on that one.
Thanks for the pre-show!
It’s probably the ideal VIFF logo though I’m still partial to last year’s Eye Collage. However, you really have to squint to see the Vancouverisms in it. Marina sounds borderline inebriated from her excitement here already. A shame I couldn’t go. I’m always just outside the festival window whenever I’m in Vancouver or Calgary (CIFF). I happen to live smack dab in between both cities and just missed CIFF by a week last year.
Yeah, I’m a bit biased to last year’s design as well but VIFF generally has nice looking logos.
And yes, I was already suffering from a contact high lol
