Independent Films – Kathy Kay

The Miami festival had several treats including Brasserie Romantiek and The Art Rush.

I’ve recently been to the Miami International Film Festival, and the Seattle Fest is around the corner, so what better time to think about what we might see in our theatres this coming year.

The Miami festival had several treats including Brasserie Romantiek and The Art Rush. The former, a drama that looks in on the dinner hour at a romantic restaurant, has many an interesting character and throws out some fine dining surprises.

Art Rush turns its eye on the contemporary art market and if you’ve read Tom Wolfe’s Back to Blood then this is a great companion piece not to be missed.

For upcoming films in Victoria, run to Cinecenta for The Lunchbox. I saw this in Toronto and loved it.  The Vic is bringing in Particle Fever and Kevin Spacey’s piece Now: In the Wings of the World Stage, an absolutely engrossing documentary with director Sam Mendes (American Beauty).
