As the 36th annual Vancouver International Film Festival draws to a close, VIFF has announced that it will be bringing back a selection of its most popular films for encore screenings at the Vancouver International Film Centre (1181 Seymour St., Vancouver) immediately following the festival. With many of these titles having sold out their screenings during the 16-day event (which wraps on October 13), these screenings will give film fans one more chance to catch some of the biggest audience favourites.
Having opened the festival to great fanfare and played to sellout crowds at two subsequent screenings, Mina Shum’s Vancouver-set Meditation Park will screen again on October 19. Meanwhile, audiences will have another opportunity to see Indian Horse, Stephen Campanelli’s stirring adaptation of Richard Wagamese’s beloved novel, on October 14. The next evening, audiences can witness the late Harry Dean Stanton’s moving valediction in Lucky.
Those who missed the festival screenings of Cannes Palme d’Or winner The Square will have another chance to catch up with Ruben Östlund’s hilarious satire on October 18. Loving Vincent, which brings van Gogh’s art to life through 65,000 hand-painted frames of animation, will again dazzle audiences on October 14.
The VIFF Repeats series also features a wealth of documentaries that proved audience favourites, including Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story, Meet Beau Dick: Maker of Monsters, The Valley of the Wolves and c̓əsnaʔəm: the city before the city.
