Brightlight Pictures hosts a 2013 VIFF Party at CinCin Restaurant & lots of Vancouver's elite film industry talent were there
The 2013 Vancouver International Film Festival has started & this past Thursday, 1 of the many industry parties they have here took place at the popular CinCin restaurant on Robson Street.
If you are aware of your Vancouver actors & industry people, this was a whos who of people you probably knew. Even if you are a moderate watcher of Vancouver filmed TV & movies, you likely could have walked by the short red carpet set up they had & went "hey, I know them from something".
A lot of the stars out at this Brightlight Pictures party were of course there to promote films they had at VIFF this year & possibly get the word out about ones for next year.
The cast for "Leap 4 Your Life" was out in full force.
John Cassini, April & Ava Telek, Anne Marie DeLuise, Nicole Oliver, Julia & Peter Benson just to name a few were in attendance at the party promoting their VIFF comedy which has been perhaps the most talked about film so far.
Julia Benson was also there promoting the comedy-drama "That Burning Feeling". Co-star Jordana Largy was also there.
A trio of former Supernatural "monsters" were also at the party.
Mark Pellegrino (Lucifer) was there to promote his new upcoming CW show "The Tomorrow People".

Ty Olsson (Benny) was there as well.
A couple of the cast from CTV Whydunit crime drama "Motive" also showed up, Louis Ferreira & Roger Cross were there throughout parts of the evening.
Roger could have been doing double duty promoting "Arrow" as well, or even triple duty for "Continuum" with his co-star Jennifer Spence, she was also there promoting "Down River" with her husband/director Ben Ratner.
The Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) featured locally shot "Horns" also was represented at the party. Laine MacNeil (most recently seen on "The Killing") was there.
The most casually dressed trio award went to Matt & Mike Granger who were there promoting their still unfunded comedy "Alien Abduction" with 1 of its stars, Patrick Gilmore. After finishing 2nd this past summer during the Cinecoup Contest, this film is still being considered by those involved if the funding for it ever comes together (oh, for the record... SOMEONE NEEDS TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN).
A couple of "Alphas" stars were there as well. Laura Mennell, along with Warren Christie & his wife Sonya Salomaa (from this past season of "The Killing") were there to take in the festivities.
The Northern Canadian CBC hit drama "Arctic Air" was represented at the party as well. Series creator Gary Harvey was there with the shows stunning star Pascale Hutton.

Some people were there simply to promote their talent. The Carrie Wheeler Entertainment Agency took to the carpet with their young star in the making Lilah Fitzgerald ( "Seventh Son", "Supernatural", and recently completed filming "Every Thing Will Be Fine" with James Franco & Rachel McAdams) there. Carrie escorted Lilah on the carpet with writer/director Jaman Lloyd who recently wrote/directed "Cheat".

Many others also were in attendance, but it was hard to catch everyone as they arrived. Some people I photographed, but failed to catch what they were there promoting, so if you see a photo of yourself, or someone you know unlabeled, please let me know & I can revise it.
Others were there who I saw & interacted with, but didn't catch on the red carpet for a photo op.
Crystal Lowe "Primeval: New World" was there to promote her new Hallmark Channel pilot "Signed Sealed Delivered"
Gil Bellows was there to promote "Three Days In Havana"
