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 on the beach. These free, public screenings showcase cult classics, Hollywood hits and vintage favourites. Please read film ratings carefully to ensure you will be attending a screening that is appropriate for you and your friends and family.
Films commence at 10 p.m. every night of the festival. Pending weather conditions, Dr. George Johnson Middle School will be used as a rain venue. It’s best to grab a spot before sunset as seating gets packed up quickly. 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. If you don’t have a chair, build one with sand!
Let’s keep our beach clean and healthy, please recycle and throw out your garbage in designated areas.
And most importantly, have fun!
