Record crowds enjoy a 2015 GFF weekend

The 15th Annual Gimli Film Festival was a memorable five-day Festival. The rain showers on Thursday did not dampen the spirits of film goers as indoor attendance hit an all-time high of 3926 throughout the Festival. Hot, humid weather dominated the last three days of this year’s Festival, causing the total beach attendance at the RBC Sunset Screenings to swell to over 6,000 people. When a rain storm hit the beach halfway through Sunday’s film, Dr. Strangelove, it resulted in a record breaking tear down. In total, over 10,100 attended this year’s dynamic lineup of films and events.

Most Talked-About Films at the Festival
A number of indoor films attracted very large crowds.

  • Amy, is a sad, riveting, and brutally honest film about the life of Amy Winehouse that examines the complex balance between art and celebrity.
  • Red Army, a documentary about the USSR hockey team also included an in-depth panel discussion with three NHL hockey players from that era.
  • Monsoon is Sturla Gunnarrson’s visually striking, award-winning documentary about India’s weather system.
  • Iris, the story of 93-year-old fashion diva Iris Apfeld of New York played to rave reviews for three packed screenings… we are now looking for our Gimli maven.
