During the Golden Age of Mexican cinema, Canadian-born cinematographer Alex Phillips (Ontario, 1900) and Spanish-born film director Luis Buñuel (Aragón, 1900), became symbols for Mexican cinema. They worked together twice: on Ascent to Heaven (1952, screens at 6.30pm) and Robinson Crusoe (1954, 8.15pm).

Winner of the awards for Best Canadian Film and Best BC film at VIFF 2014, and subsequently named the Best BC Film by the Vancouver Film Critics Circle and at the LEO awards, Violent is the debut feature from Andrew Huculiak, drummer for the Vancouver-based band We Are the City. In Bergen, Norway, Dagny (the incandescent Dagny Backer Johnsen), sets out on her life’s journey, and feelings of togetherness and isolation, love and solitude rise to the surface.
