For the 21st anniversary, GFF is excited to announce a **tentative** Sunset Drive-In Movie Theatre, hosted by RBC! The RBC Sunset Drive-In Theatre will be a contactless and physically distanced way to watch some of the best films of the past year. If this event proceeds, GFF will strive to provide the safest environment that follows all public safety guidelines in response to COVID-19 developments. The safety of our community comes above all! Tickets will be made available through a lottery system starting on Sat, July 3 at Noon CDT. We encourage those interested in Drive-In tickets to sign-up for the GFF eNewsletter at the bottom of the page, to ensure you have the latest info and reminders about Drive-In Tickets.

What is it?

Hop in the car and drive to Gimli, Manitoba for a special RBC Sunset Drive-In Theatre experience!

The RBC Sunset Drive-In Theatre runs for 5 nights – July 21-25 – with nightly 10 PM screenings! Pull up your car, turn up the radio, and tune in to a movie under the stars at the Gimli Film Festival this summer!

Audio will be broadcast via FM radio signal. Please ensure that you have access to a FM radio tuner either via your vehicle or via an external radio/boombox.

Your safety is our main concern! Although the RBC Sunset Drive-In Theatre is a contact-less event, GFF recognizes that extenuating circumstances could still force us to cancel this event. In this case, all ticket buyers would be refunded. We will continue to monitor the situation. The well-being of our community comes first and foremost in all our decisions.
