    One year I had a VIP pass (not worth the bucks). I found that the Granville theatre had huge lineups. My tip is that you could pick up tickets at lunchtime, then see the show later that night. The paper guide is worth the expense. The Gala is a fun party and worth seeing once. The VISA gold tickets would be worth it – they treat the Visa Gold people better than the higher paying ‘VIP’ tickets. so, totally get a Gala ticket and check out the party. If I were to pick a Gala show, I’d go with Starbuck. I also liked the short films.. you see a bunch of short films in the time it takes to see a movie, so you’re guaranteed to see something good.

    My friend most wants to see:

    The Turin Horse

    because he likes the director and has heard good things about the film, but warns that most people would find it interminably long and boring. I think I’d like to see it, though, after reading the description.

    Others he thinks are interesting:

    We Can’t Go Home Again – 2011 Vancouver International Film Festival

    Le Havre

    Happy People: A Year in the Taiga
