RBC Sunset Beach Screenings

RBC Sunset Beach Screenings

The Gimli Film Festival and Royal Bank of Canada are proud to announce our 2017 line-up for our legendary Beach Screenings!

A film viewing experience unlike any other!

We are famous for our 11 metre tall film screen that stands strong in the waters of Lake Winnipeg during our Festival. Every night during the GFF, you have the chance to catch a flick (and maybe some Northern Lights) under the stars and on the beach. We showcase all genres of film including some vintage favourites.

Films commence at 10pm every night of the festival pending weather conditions (Rain Venue: Dr. George Johnson Middle School). Please keep in mind that we have chair-free seating directly in front of the screen and a separate area for lawn/beach chairs. Please be courteous to others by using low sitting chairs, we want everyone to be able to enjoy the film.

Enter for a chance to win VIP seating & guest experience for the 2017 RBC Sunset Screenings Thursday – Sunday

Enjoy the beach screenings in VIP style, courtesy of RBC. One lucky winner and five friends will get to enjoy the best view, in comfy beach chairs, plus snacks, at one of the Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday sunset screenings (listed below).
