Welcome to the 2020 Gimli Film Festival – now ONLINE!

The 20th annual Gimli Film Festival will be moving exclusively online!  We are incredibly sad to be forced to cancel in-person events, however we are excited that GFF is going to be able to offer one of the most comprehensive Online Film Festivals ever offered in Canada when it goes live, July 22 to 26, 2020!

GFF’s 2020 Online Film Festival will be offered via two distinct platforms:

  1. GFF ON DEMAND – an on-demand, Netlfix-styled film viewing platform that will be available to Passholders & Ticket Buyers from July 22 – 26, 2020.
  2. GFF LIVE STREAM – a FREE schedule of live streamed events, presented live on our website during the 5 days of GFF’s 2020 Festival, July 22 – 26, 2020.

GFF On Demand is the Gimli Film Festival’s new online, on-demand, Netflix-styled film viewing platform that will be accessible to GFF Passholders and Individual Ticket-buyers during the 2020 Festival, July 22 – 26, 2020!

Have you ever used Netflix before?  GFF On Demand is essentially the same thing!  You decide when and what to watch, and you do so from the comfort from your own home.  The platform will be easily accessible through any internet web browser on your computer, phone or tablet.  It will also be accessible through downloadable Apps for Apple TV & Roku!
