Get a sneak peek at your favourite film of the year (trust us…) when High-Rise screens at the Vancity Theatre on Friday (April 15), with an in-person intro by director Ben Wheatley. Even more exciting: Wheatley hosts a master class the next day. We were already sold after Kill List and A Field in England, but Wheatley’s adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s 1975 novel, featuring Tom Hiddleston and Jeremy Irons, cements the Brit as one of the most daring and accomplished filmmakers of his generation. Details at www.viff.org/.
