This year’s Vancouver International Film Festival Opening Gala theme was BOLLYWOOD! It was a great sight to see so many guests dressed in spectacular and vibrant Indian outfits.
Deepa Mehta, an Indian-born Canadian film director and screenwriter said in a recent Vancouver Sun interview:
“This is my fourth time at VIFF and I must say that VIFF throws the best after parties in the world. The one that we are in totally rocks. We’ve got Bhangra and jazz and you have the most amazing food, so I am thrilled to be here. And it’s a great audience for film, it’s perfect.”
We certainly agree, my favourite dish was the tandoori lamb…mmmmmmmmm….
Guests entering the venue were greeted by enormous floral arrangements, we designed them with roses, hydrangeas, orchids, dahlias, and curly willow dancing to Indian music in iron baskets.
I love what proper lighting can do to a simple cocktail table arrangement.
