CFUV @ VFF: Troy Sebastian’s Wrap-up

CFUV at VFF 2016

The 2016 Victoria Film Fest provided such a swath of Canadian cinema one would expect a scythe in scale of  Duncan’s majestic hockey stick to be astride the VFF headquarters. Bushels of debut filmmakers were harvested for the Victoria audience’s enjoyment. Kathy Kay and her intrepid army of cinephiles deserve much respect and credit for providing such an offering. In particular, Michelle Latimer’s indigenous program provided rare opportunities for indigenous filmmakers and storytellers to take center stage in Victoria. For a city of such shallow imperial roots, the justice of the earth needs stories like Mekko and Le Dep for the soil’s reconciliation. It was an absolute privilege to cover the festival on behalf of CFUV. Cue end credits.

-Troy Sebastian
