INDEPENDENT FILMS – Kathy Kay

Film fest features return to Victoria

Locally made films or those with a Victoria connection made it to the big screen in February at the Victoria Film Festival but that’s not the last that you will hear of them. The Best Canadian Feature Award winner Two 4 One by UVic Associate Professor Maureen Bradley is heading to both Cinecenta and the downtown Vic Theatre. Featuring This Hour Has 22 Minutes’ Gavin Crawford as one half of a couple who both end up pregnant, it’s high concept fun.

Locally connected Suzanne Crocker’s film All the Time in the World will also be back after picking up the Cineplex Entertainment Audience Favourite Award. By the way, local composer David Parfit did music/sound for both films.

And on the non-local front, if you missed Foreign Language nominated film Wild Tales at the Festival don’t miss it when it reappears at The Vic. I’m certain it is and will remain my favourite film in 2015.
