KATHY’S PICS – Kathy Kay

What's new in independent films

Victoria Film Festival director Kathy Kay

I’m back from the Toronto International Film Festival and positively gleeful over the delights seen and the food eaten (I made it to Momofuko! And yes, I just like saying the name.) Watch for Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave, Don McKellar’s The Grand Seduction (based on the Victoria Film Festival 2003 favourite Seducing Doctor Lewis), and Mehta’s Siddharth.

Coming Up:

The Vic Theatre is opening daily beginning Oct. 5 with special event screenings and new indie releases like the mesmerizing Best Documentary of the Seattle Film Festival, Our Nixon. Catch the TV premiere party for The Walking Dead – only 200 zombies permitted, a James Bond anniversary night, and a Halloween Sing-Along Little Shop of Horrors. For Beatles fans there’s the charming Good Ol’ Freda, a doc about the woman who went from fan to secretary right through the break-up.

Check out:

Special event screenings at The Vic Theatre have themed beverages, costume prizes and the list goes on.
