How to Festival

GFF – A Unique Experience

No other film festival on earth can boast the same ambiance as the GFF, featuring the best in Canadian and international film on an 11-metre, beach front screen rising out of Lake Winnipeg. The RBC Sunset Beach Screenings are always free, as are the added attractions of northern lights and spectacular stars (on the screen and in the sky)!  The 5 indoor venues are within easy walking distance of each other, and showcase the absolute best in features, docs and shorts from Canada and around the world.

RBC Sunset Beach Screenings – What to Bring

The RBC Sunset Beach Screenings start after sunset, but it’s a good idea to arrive early. Most importantly, bring your friends and family, along with a blanket and (low) chairs. A little bug stuff might not hurt, either.

Join us earlier on Gimli Beach for the RBC Beach Boardwalk, 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening for activities, displays, music and fun!

You’ll be happy to hear that all the indoor venues are air-conditioned. Bring your passes and/or film tickets, along with your Festival program, and arrive in plenty of time. Ensure you have a seat at your favourite film! More on GFF passes and tickets.

Are the films rated?

Yes, the films are rated by the Manitoba Film Classification Board. If there isn’t a rating in this program, there will be one available at the screening.
