The Vancouver International Film Festival opened last week. Armed with my friend & amazing camera op GP Mendoza, we covered all 20′ of that red carpet. While we’re no Cannes, I found out that a red carpet film fest even in laid back Vancity, can be mighty exciting and full of intrigue.
Especially when smart, lovely people like hometown girl Sonja Bennett is writing & starring in her own film alongside Oscar nominee James Caan to rave reviews. Her film Preggoland will be screened October 2. In the video, I ask her what it was like working with him.
Or when painfully beautiful and charming actors like Drew Roy from TNT’s Falling Skies makes eyes at you (I die!). I am still not over how intolerably cute he is. Trust. I think his legions of loyal fans would agree.
Or when you find out the 2 people standing in front of you ate from dumpsters and thrown away food for 6 months and survived to tell their incredible tale. Weight loss plan, anyone? Au contraire (see video for why.)
My oufit on the carpet? Kept it cas. It’s Vancouver after all.
