lochlyn_munro_actor.jpgThe Vancouver International Film Festival is among the top five film festivals in the world. And while it is not known for its’ big name Hollywood hype, it is however known for its’ international flair and diverse content. Still, parties and red carpet glam do happen and one of the biggest soirees is always held at Cin Cin restaurant on Robson. Owned by West Vancouver restaurateur Jack Evrensel, the evening is hosted by Brightlights Pictures and The Bridge Studios execs who always manage to invite the who’s who of the local scene and screen.

02 – Blonde bombshell April Telek was born and raised on the North Shore. Look for her in the upcoming TV mini-series “Hell on Wheels” – a drama/adventure based on the construction of Union Pacific’s Transcontinental Railroad.
