GFF 2018 - Film Fans outside of the Gimli Theatre

Day 12 – 12 Days of Giving

We did it –we’re here! It’s Day 12 of the 12 Days of Giving and first of all, we’re thankful you came along for this journey and second, today we’re celebrating our amazing volunteers and you –the audience!

Where would we be without the 12,400 of you that showed up to the shores of Gimli this year? Thank you for wanting to explore the world of cinema with us for the past 18 years. The 2018 Festival was a record-breaking year for us and we are so thankful to you –our film fans.

Special thank you to our volunteers! Their dedication and enthusiasm cultivate a fun, friendly atmosphere at GFF. They go above and beyond, and they truly are the best ambassadors for our Festival and Gimli. We have over 100 volunteers that touch every aspect of the Festival. From driving film guests from Winnipeg to Gimli to selling tickets, our volunteers are the driving force behind the Festival. Thank you to our official volunteer sponsor Manitoba Liquor Mart.

That’s it, that’s all from us… for now! We’ll be back in 2019 with exciting news for the 2019 Festival and then we’ll start counting down the months to July!

Here’s to you! Wishing you all the best this holiday season and a happy new year!
