Take this Waltz tops Vancouver Film Festival’s dance card

Take This Waltz, the Toronto-set second feature from actor-turned director Sarah Polley, will open the Vancouver International Film Festival’s Canadian Images program this year as the 16-day event rolls out at month’s end.

Polley also wrote the new movie, a comic drama starring Michelle Williams, Sarah Silverman and Seth Rogen, which screens Sept. 30 at the Vogue Theatre.

“It’s set in the oppressive heat of a Toronto summer – let’s linger over those words,” joked Canadian I­mages programmer Terry McEvoy. Polley was nominated for a screenwriting Oscar for her directing debut, 2006’s Away From Her.

VIFF announced details of its 80-film Canadian program yesterday. The festival, which screens a total of 360 films from around the world, closes Oct. 14 with The Kid With a Bike, the latest film from Belgium’s writing/directing Dardenne brothers.
