Docs rock the VIFF

The Vancouver International Film Festival does not have the red carpet glamour or stalked Hollywood stars like that of our eastern rival, Toronto. But what the VIFF lacks in glitz, it makes up for in spades by screening some of the finest films from around the world and right here at home.

The VIFF gives eager Vancouverites the chance to see films that do not receive the massive studio release in the form of the often ultra-polished and formulaic Hollywood Blockbuster. This is particularly true in the documentary film category, where viewers were given a taste of the best the world has to offer. Here’s a compilation of reviews that focus on some of the films that had both substance and hype in this year’s non-fiction category.
