Gimli Film Festival – Day Two

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!
