Old Hollywood Glamour on Display at Film Fest’s Opening Gala

From fire spinners to cigarette girls and fine dining to swing dancing, the Victoria Film Festival’s 21st Opening Gala on February 6 channeled the timeless style of Hollywood’s Golden Age.

Following the screening of the opening night film, Boychoir, the audience made their way to the 1940’s themed party at NOIR on Government Street. Live music from the 20-piece big band, Pacific Blue, the Naden band of the Royal Canadian Navy, who were accompanied by the UVic Ballroom Dance Club’s swing dancers, played up the 1940s vibe.
