Edmonton International Film Festival/Facebook
Only four festivals in Canada made the cut.
In a few days, show businesses big fete lands in Toronto and you are all invited. The excitement of the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) is building and everyone can feel it. It's a time that brings out the best and at times the worst in people.
VIFF has a reputation of attracting a bit of a film snob set in comparison to its much larger sister festival in Toronto. Don't believe the hype. VIFF fosters a fabulous celebration of film, whether it's your first time or you've been going for years. Many people ask me how to approach the film selection process. With so many screenings spanning a two-week period, how does one decide what to see?
The arts offer a view across cultures and geography, and sometimes, seeing the "other" point of view can be startling; if you're from Cambodia, what we call the Vietnam War is known as the American War. That's what art will always have on corporate news.
