ITS and The Vancouver International Film Festival
ITS has the pleasure of being the official IT provider for VIFF three years running, as well as, a Gold Sponsor for a film in the festival. This year ITS has chosen to sponsor the film You’ve Been Trumped. A documentary of Donald Trumps’ new development idea to build the worlds most luxurious golf resort in the parish of Balmedie Scotland- the birthplace of the sport. An interesting look at the tactics to smear those who oppose the project in order to get more jobs and bring money into the village, showing those who were willing and brave enough to dig in and fight for their land.
