Yesterday was a fantastic start to our 18th annual Gimli Film Festival and we can’t wait to continue the momentum with more exciting cinema today. You can no longer pre-reserve seats at any of the films today, but 50 percent of seats at each film are put aside as rush seating, cost is $10 cash only for this without a Film, Filmmaker or Super Pass.
Starting at 10 a.m. we are screening Bachman and The Miseducation of Cameron Post.
This afternoon we have a 12:30 p.m. showing of the dark Icelandic comedy Under the Tree. When two neighbours feud over the overstretched tree on the one side things take a more dramatic turn. Don’t forget to show up early for rush seating!
At 3 p.m. the documentary on declining Indigenous languages in Quebec, Those Who Come, Will Hear screens at the Lady of the Lake Theatre.
At 5:30 p.m. we have a must-see-documentary filmed on the road inside Elvis Presley’s old 1963 Rolls Royce that takes a look at Elvis’ transition from simple country boy to ‘The King‘.
(Also screening at 5:30 p.m. is Mankiller and A Song for John Ramsay)
Following that we have local favourite Guy Maddin introducing his film Archangel. The film is of an
amnesiac soldier who arrives in Russia to help fight a war he is unaware has already ended.
Tonight at 10 p.m. we have our RBC Sunset Screening of Phantom of the Paradise, so grab a warm blanket and something to munch and head on down to Gimli Beach!
