While the Vancouver International Film Festival‘s 2010 season kicked off in style with parties from Martini Madness, Brightlight Pictures, and the official opening gala, the red carpets are slowly being tucked away for another year. However, it’s never too late to look back on the good times had throughout the festival and the deliciousness that was set out before us at the opening gala a few weeks ago.
