Lights … cameras … action, and comedy and drama too! It’s time again for the Vancouver International Film Festival, running from September 26th until October 11, 2013!
The BEST WESTERN PLUS Chateau Granville hotel in the center of downtown Vancouver is the perfect place to stay for easy access to all the participating venues of the Vancouver International Film Festival 2013. We are located just around the corner from the Vancity Theatre, and the Cinematheque theatre. This hotel is also within walking distance, a short cab ride, or an easy transit ride to the fabulous Centre for Performing Arts, the spacious Vancouver Playhouse, the Cineplex Odeon International Village, Simon Fraser University Goldcorp Center for the Arts, and east Vancouver’s Rio Theatre.
The Vancouver International Film Festival 2013 is presenting 500 screenings of 340 carefully selected films from 70 countries. Films from the United States and Canada will be featured, as well as films from Japan, Columbia, Sweden, China and many more countries!
Since its founding in 1982, the not-for-profit Vancouver International Film Festival has grown into one the preeminent film festivals in Canada, and is among the five largest film festivals in North America. New this year are 3 DISTINCTIVE NEIGHBOURHOODS hosting the festival for 2013. The neighbourhoods of Granville and Davie, Commercial and Broadway, and the Gastown/Crosstown neighbourhood will all be centers of cinematic excitement for 2 weeks.
Make your Film Festival experience all the more enjoyable and memorable, by rendezvousing before or after the movie of your choice, in our own Edge Social Grille and Lounge. The Edge is an ideal place to meet friends to preview or review the evening’s film.
After the show is over, and after one final nightcap in our lounge, you’ll be happy to take the elevator home for the night, to the comfort of your one bedroom suite.
This year discover something new at the Vancouver International Film Festival 2013.
