A scene from Parasite, the Cannes winner that will be also screen at VIFF
More? How about Mary Shelley, who wrote Frankenstein, Arrhythmia, the real Russia, Prodigals, a BC look eastward, and memories of horror with The Accountant of Auschwitz
And there are these alternatives: Boost, a Canadian film that should be better known, Nostalgia, about our memories and possessions and Death Wish, a blast of gun porn
Wonderstruck, from a YA novel, is the VIFF closing film this year.
Also Canadian films get a special day (in some places a week) and a pilgrim trek suitable for Easter
Also Drew and Toni as friends, the man who felled the Golden Spruce and three film festivals
