It's the moment that VIFF-goers have been waiting for: the VIFF Repeats series has been announced.
The series brings back some of the most popular selections from the festival, giving viewers one last shot at some selections that they may have missed due to lack of time, schedule conflicts, full screenings, or other reasons.
The series runs from Saturday (October 11) to Monday (October 13) at various VIFF venues.
It's important to note that your festival passes and tickets are not accepted at these screenings.
Among the selections are several homegrown efforts: Andrew Huculiak's dramatic feature Violent, which won both the best B.C. Film and Best Canadian Film Awards at the B.C. Spotlight Gala; the food waste documentary Just Eat It, which won the #MustSeeBC contest and also the VIFF Impact Award; The Pristine Coast, about the history of fish farming in B.C. and the efforts of biologist Alexandra Morton to draw attention to its harmful impact; Everything Will Be, Julia Kwan's documentary about Vancouver's Chinatown; and Sitting on the Edge of Marlene, for which writer-director Ana Valine won the BC Emerging Filmmaker award.
There's also Jalanan, the Indonesian documentary about street buskers in Jakarta by local filmmaker Daniel Ziv.
Also, many of the festival's selections often come back for theatrical runs later in the year so keep your eyes peeled.
