Chosen by VIFF Vancity Theatre members, this year’s free New Year’s Eve event movie is Edgar Wright’s anti-blockbuster, a hipster’s comic book adaptation chock full of great gags and inventive fun. When under-employed underground hero Scott Pilgrim (the cutely anxious Michael Cera) takes up with a cool American girl, Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), he must fight it out with her seven exes in videogame-style battles.

It’s the perfect appetizer for a memorable New Year’s Eve. Pre-order your free tickets at Doors at 5.45, Film at 7.00

Ex-film extra Zafer (Cem Yılmaz) decides to alter his ways when his wife Arzu (Tülin Özen) suddenly walks out on their marriage. Promising to abandon his world of petty crime primarily revolving around DVD piracy, Zafer, with the help of some eccentric film industry pals, sets out to realize an age-old film project collecting dust since the 70s…
