ROOM IS THE VANCOUVER FILM CRITICS CIRCLE'S CANADIAN FILM OF THE YEAR


After no film won more than one international award each with the Vancouver Film Critics Circle, voters made their true favourites much clearer with yesterday's Canadian category awards. Only four films were honoured over the 11 national categories, and Room built upon its existing win for Brie Larson in the main Best Actress race with further wins for Film, Actor, Screenplay, and another win for Larson in Actress in a Canadian Film.
