    International Film Festival. Paris Zarcilla’s Raging Grace and Seán Devlin’s Asog will be shown
    during the 42nd edition of VIFF! The Vancouver International Film Festival is one of the 5
    largest film festivals in North America and continues to be a fall highlight for the city’s
    cinephiles. Now, let’s take a closer look at the films that will be playing and their director’s.
    Paris Zarcilla’s Raging Grace played at SXSW in Austin, Texas in March of this year and was
    named the Winner of the SXSW Grand Jury Award and Thunderbird Rising Award at the 2023

    debut film!

    Cineplex International Village.

    Seán Devlin, creator of Asog, has had films presented at Cannes Docs, Tribeca, Cairo and Sao
    Paulo International Film. He is also a winner of 2 previous VIFF jury awards, Best Director and
    the Emerging Canadian Director prize.

    Rio Theatre.

    Following the lead of Paco and Leonor Will Never Die from last year’s VIFF, Raging Grace and
