steve_bacic.jpg The 29th Vancouver International Film Festival has been taking place all over the city for the last two weeks with over 370 films from over 75 different countries. Truly a place to watch the world, the emphasis here is on artistic merit over that of Hollywood hype. Local actors, directors and more are also given the spotlight including North Shore influenced films like “Mighty Jerome” (the story of local African-Canadian track-and-field star Harry Jerome) and Sara McIntyre’s “Two Indians Talking”. One of the best opening night galas was held last week at West Vancouver restaurateur Jack Evrensel’s fabulous Cin Cin restaurant with many famous faces in attendance.
