The lights go up on this year’s Vancouver International Film Festival with a gala opening screening of Atom Egoyan’s Guest of Honour at the Centre for Performing Arts on September 26.
From there, VIFF welcomes everything from Bong Joon Ho’s Palme d’Or winning Parasite to surefire crowdpleasers like Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit to the unwholesome thrills of Jeff Barnaby’s Indigenous zombie epic, Blood Quantum.
With something to delight, inspire, and offend everyone—not mention live events including a Spinal Tap tribute led by local indie darling Louise Burns and a Creator Talk featuring the legendary Walter Murch—what is an eager cinephile to do?

The 38th Vancouver International Film Festival takes place from September 26 to October 11.
