VIFF 2016 INTERVIEW: SHE'S ALLERGIC TO CATS DIRECTOR MICHAEL REICH
by Jason Whyte
""SHE'S ALLERGIC TO CATS is a movie about dogs. It's a love letter to dogs really. I'm not too into cats to be honest. The movie is also a love story. But not between dogs and cats. Between people. And then it's a horror movie too. It's kind of hard to explain. You should just go see it." Director Michael Reich on SHE'S ALLERGIC TO CATS which screens at VIFF 2016!" (more)

VIFF 2016 INTERVIEW: TO KEEP THE LIGHT DIRECTOR ERICA FAE
by Jason Whyte
""I rarely ever get involved in convincing people to do things. I feel like people will be drawn to what they are drawn to. And in many ways, just looking at one still from my film will do more to pull someone in than anything I would say. Though; a visually gorgeous piece about a strong, brave woman in an era before women's rights were even on the table, though it's more about her internal life than the external world she's in." Director Erica Fae on TO KEEP THE LIGHT which screens at VIFF 2016!" (more)
VIFF 2016 INTERVIEW: BODAS (BETWEEN THEM) DIRECTOR ALEXIA MALTNER
by Jason Whyte
""BODAS is a short film that tells the story of an elderly couple that looks like the perfect portrait of the happy couple to family and friends. They are celebrating their fiftieth wedding anniversary with a big party. However, in the midst of the party-planning, an unexpected decision might change the course of their entire lives. Dora realizes that her marriage is coming apart at the seams. At the age of 80, she feels that she's still full of life and she has a lot to live for. On the other hand, Caio, her husband, only sees that they are too old; and, therefore, there's no need to change at this time in their lives. After 50 years of marriage, is it worth sticking together for the sake of routine and convenience? Should they play it safe and be content to conform to "til death do us apart"? Should they be bold enough and chance happiness? Do they have what it takes to go their separate ways? Is age an obstacle to new beginnings?" Director Alexia Maltner on BODAS which screens at Vancouver Film Festival 2016." (more)
