Vancouver International Film Festival -The Burrard Hotel
People bandy around the term “Hollywood North” when talking about Vancouver, mainly because of the number of movies that are shot here, and not because of the rise in cosmetic surgery (we hope). So it’s totally fitting that Vancouver also has an awesome annual film festival. Running September 24 through October 9 this year, the Vancouver International Film Festival will offer almost 350 movie screenings, resulting in 144,000 bums in cinema seats. It’s one of top five North American film festivals in terms of the number of films and attendance. That’s pretty impressive.

But lots of cities have a film festival, so what makes the Vancouver International Film Festival worth attending?

Vancouver Hotel Courtyard - The Burrard
If you’ve ever stayed with us, you’ll know that The Burrard’s inner courtyard is one of our grooviest features. We think it’s the best Vancouver hotel courtyard, resplendent with huge palm trees, a sunny deck, and plenty of corners to relax with a beer or get a little work done on the laptop. But now there’s even more to love about our courtyard!

We can tell you about how awesome The Burrard is until we’re blue in the face.

But it’s not just us who are fans of free bike rentals, espresso machines in every room, and a glorious, glorious courtyard. Over the past couple of months, our media friends have also been singing our praises!
