INDEPENDENT FILMS: Kathy Kay

Victoria Film Festival's Kathy Kay talks all this indie movies in her monthly column

Freshly returned from the Toronto Film Festival and I’m all enthused as the chase is on to see what we can land for the next Victoria Film Festival.

Some wonderful films will open before the fest…

Keep your eyes peeled for Mr. Turner, featuring favourite Timothy Spall. I think one day I will have to go to therapy for my love of short, chubby UK men because also on my list is Brendan Gleeson and Ray Winstone, but let’s leave that for another day.

What’s of note coming up: Bond night on Oct. 3 at the newly licensed Vic Theatre, so shaken or stirred, the game is on.

Rounding out the month will be Halloween spooky times but perhaps the most anticipated night will be the screening of The Blair Witch Project in the forest.

Up at Cinecenta, if you haven’t seen Boyhood then make tracks, it’s on for four days so catch it while you can.
