Canadian films A New Moon Over Tohoku and Window Horses, along with international features Elle and Kedi, will return to the screen

WireService.ca Media Release (10/12/2016) VANCOUVER, BC - As the 35th annual Vancouver International Film Festival wraps up, the festival will bring back a selection of its most popular films to the Vancouver International Film Centre (1181 Seymour St, Vancouver) immediately following the festival, which concludes its successful run on October 14. As many of the titles played to packed houses during the 16-day event, these screenings give festival-goers one more chance to catch the audience favourites.

Window Horses, by esteemed Vancouver director Ann Marie Fleming, will screen on Saturday, October 15 in recognition of it winning both Best Canadian Film and Best BC Film at VIFF. The animated film portrays a young girl's journey of self-discovery after she receives a mysterious invitation to a poetry festival in Iran.

Italian comedy Like Crazy screens on October 16. The Thelma & Louise-like comedy depicts two women who escape a Tuscan mental institution and cultivate a beautiful friendship with each other while discovering that the world of the supposedly sane isn't so stable.

The documentary Freightened: The Real Price of Shipping will also return on October 17. This illuminating conversation-starter details the destructive environmental costs of everyday items that are shipped across vast oceans to the detriment of local habitats.

Also playing during the VIFF Repeats series will be Paul Verhoeven's provocative Elle and Olivier Assayas' Personal Shopper, which scored the Best Director Prize at this year's Cannes Film Festival.
