The 2023 Vancouver International Film Festival has drawn to a close, and this week, we're talking about three films we saw as part of the fest: I'm Just Here for the Riot, a documentary about the 2011 Stanley Cup Riot in Vancouver, our hometown. Mr. Dressup: The Magic of Make-Believe is a documentary about a beloved children's entertainer who helped shape generations of Canadians.The Royal Hotel is a gripping thriller from director Kitty Green about two young women who take a job at a bar in rural Australia.  We have much to say about each of them, so join us!STRIKE NOTE:            This episode was produced during the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strikes.
