An appreciative crowd partied like it was 1979 in a converted former office supply store, to help kick off the opening night of the Victoria Film Festival on Friday.
Party goers dressed in their best sparkly outfits, wide-lapeled leisure suits, platform shoes and knee-high boots gathered at the venue, aptly named Studio 25, in honour of the festival’s 25th anniversary. The crowd began the evening by watching a screening of French film, Le Grand Bain (known here by its English title, Sink or Swim) at the Victoria Conference Centre theatre.
The festival continues this week at various theatres around the region, including Vic Film festival home venue, the Vic Theatre. For a full schedule, visit victoriafilmfestival.com.
