The eighth annual Vancouver International Women in Film Festival takes place at the Vancity Theatre (1181 Seymour Street) from March 7 to 10. This year, the festival founded and organized by Women in Film + Television Vancouver will feature 27 short, mid-length, and feature films from more than a dozen countries.
The films selected this year include narrative, documentary, experimental, and animation. Some highlights include “Jamón”, a classically animated short film about a pig living in a family of humans; Life in Stills, a beautiful documentary about the relationships between an aging woman and her grandson as they attempt to save her late husband’s work; Little Black Spiders, a drama about young women who are sent to live out their pregnancies in a hospital’s attic; “OMG”, a Canadian short film that looks at the relationship between a misunderstood teenager and her grandmother; “The Stolen”, a fantasy-thriller where a young girl’s dark wish comes true; and Телега (The Cart), a silent mid-length film that follows an abandoned cart that moves on its own.
Tickets to film screenings start at $10 and can be purchased online or by calling 604-685-1152. Tickets will also be available at the Vancity Theatre box office.
