It’s no surprise that Vancouver’s cherry blossoms are a gorgeous (and much-anticipated) spring pastime. And with more than 90,000 flowering trees, there’s no shortage of mesmerizing sights around the city.

But if you haven’t had the chance to watch the blossoms in full bloom, well, you’re in luck.

After an exclusive premiere at the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival’s (VCBF) Sakura at Home, the festival has released In Full Bloom.

The 12-minute short film used drones to capture stunning aerial views of the cherry blossoms in Vancouver. The film was directed by chief drone pilot Patrick Weir and Vancouver’s own Peacemaker Filmworks.

According to the festival, the film is a tribute to British Columbians who are staying home and staying safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal of the film is to “bring the fragile beauty of the cherry blossom into everyone’s home, especially those who are housebound or more vulnerable.”

“Imagine yourself strolling along a pathway with a cherry blossom canopy, in full bloom,” says the VCBF. “The colour, the wonder, and the connection we feel slow our pace as we become lost in thought.”
