The Gimli Film Festival (GFF) kicks off the 19th annual festival today with the launch of the 2019 Festival’s focus: Cinema Outside the Box.
This special focus for 2019 will explore cinematic works outside of traditional single-channel films by showcasing expanded cinema performances, multi-media installations, performance art using multi-media and virtual reality projects at this year’s festival. The festival runs Wednesday, July 24 to Sunday, July 28 in Gimli, Manitoba.
“As Manitoba’s premier film festival, we’re excited to showcase these ground-breaking new forms of cinema in 2019. We are so excited to be able to bring these visionary films and performances from around-the-world to Manitoba,” says Aaron Zeghers, GFF Festival Director. “As always, GFF will continue to showcase and champion Manitoba’s filmmaking talent and provide opportunities for local filmmakers to learn and connect.”
