It's that time of year again - the leaves are starting to turn and the air has an unmistakable chill signaling the start of a new season. Fall is here. For many of us it means new beginnings, and even if we have been out of school for many years, the season will always hold that feeling of starting something new.
Although it has felt like fall for a few weeks here in Vancouver, the season officially starts today with the equinox, and soon enough the leaves will start to turn color and shed as the winter approaches; but despite the cold weather and short days, I love fall. It is the most beautiful season, and if you are a photographer then there is no better time to get out there and take in the natural splendor.
However, if the natural beauty of fall is not enough to make you change your view on the season, then maybe an international film festival will warm you up to it. The 30th of September marks the start of the Vancouver International Film Festival being held here in the city. The festival will run from Sept 30th- Oct 15th and will feature various genres such as:
"Africa Today, Ecologies of Mind, Arts & Letters, Audience Award Winners, Canadian Images, Cinema of Our Time, Dragons & Tigers, Films for youth under 18, High School Program, Nonfiction Features (Docs), Galas, Spotlight on France, and Special Presentations"
