VIFF 2011: Everything & Everyone

Comments 42 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Vancouver International Film Festival starts tomorrow with the opening gala screening and will run until October 14th. As a sponsor of the festival, I have the pleasure of co-presenting the world premiere of the film Everything & Everyone on October 12th.

This charming and emotional drama from talented local director Tracy D. Smith was shot in Maple Ridge, B.C. Smith brings us an engaging ensemble film starring Gabrielle Rose as a mother quietly coping with dementia and Ryan Robbins as her grown son Noah who still lives at home.

Directed By: Tracy D. Smith
Executive Producer: Victoria Bennett
Producer/Screenwriter: Ian Tang

A part of the Canadian Images series at VIFF, the film feature a star-studded cast of local talent including Ryan Robbins (“Sanctuary”), Gabrielle Rose (“The Sweet Hereafter”), Chad Willett (“Cole”), Lane Edwards (“Smallville”), Chelah Horsdal (“Rise of the Planet of the Apes”), and Sean Michael Kyer (“Fringe”).

The world premiere of Everything & Everyone will take place at 6:45pm October 12, 2011 at the Granville 7 theatres and I’m pleased to team up with the First Weekend Club to sponsor this event. There are still tickets available for the screening the following afternoon, October 13th.

If you would like to attend the world premiere with us (and the folks who made this film happen), I’m giving away two pairs of my sponsor tickets. Here’s how you can enter to win:
