I went to the annual Women in Film Festival ( WIFF at womeninfilm.ca ) this weekend at the Vancity Theatre. WIFF Director and Film Producer Robyn Wiener suggested I come out and see what WIFF 2010 is about this year. Women are making strides in the film industry as most visibly seen by Kathryn Bigelow’s Academy Award for Best Director at the Oscars. The Festival showcases and promotes the great work being done by women in writing, producing, directing, lead acting, or editing roles.
It was another rainy day in Vancouver, so I sought out a local neighborhood place to watch the Slovakia-Canada game. It turns out that the RIO movie theatre on Broadway Commercial Drive was showing the hockey game for FREE!
