Only four more days of the 12 Days of Giving and today we’re thanking our hometown heroes! The local community drives our Festival and we are so lucky to have so many community supporters on board.
These sponsors are our theatre and special event hosts along with our venue partners. Thank you to the New Heritage Iceland Museum, the Aspire Theatre – Unitarian Church, the Gimli Theatre, Johnson Hall – The Waterfront Centre, the Ship & Plough and the Lutheran Church! Special thanks to the RM of Gimli – our ultimate host – for always supporting us, especially as we continue to grow.
At the Festival, we also celebrate Gimli’s Icelandic heritage with our Icelandic Film Series. This year, we brought in two filmmakers from Iceland – Karna Sigurðardóttir and Ása Helga Hjörleifsdóttir. This series is generously sponsored by Gimli Pharmasave, Icelandair and supported by the Canada Iceland Foundation, Iceland Naturally, the Icelandic Film Centre and Consulate General of Iceland Winnipeg.
