Today is the Closing Gala of the 2009 Vancouver International Film Festival however due to popular demand, VIFF films will continue to be screened next week.

  • This Way of Life – Saturday October 17, 7:00 pm
  • Queen to Play – Saturday October 17, 9:00 pm
  • Only When I Dance– Sunday October 18, 6:30 pm

  • All screenings listed above will take place at the licensed Vancity Theatre (on Seymour near Davie). If you didn’t get the chance to check out the 377 films offered this year, or those you’ve heard a lot of buzz about, next week is your chance.

    Tickets for tonight’s gala screening of Queen to Play along with the VIFF09 awards and party are still available. I’ll edit this post later tonight with an update from the awards ceremonies.

      I so wish they were repeating Precious since I didn’t have a chance to see it and it looks so good!
