Thank you for celebrating our 25th year with us, and for all your support in these challenging times.
With the cancellations of March 15 screenings at the Vine Theatre, and the Afterthought events, the 2020 Festival is now officially over, but we hope to see you in the near future at the to-be-rescheduled events, Betweens, and in 2021 Festival. Stay tuned! Stay healthy!

Historical feature films like Incitement, the Tobacconist and Bride Flight can take you on revealing journeys, capture a moment in time and bring real-life characters to screen. Travel with us.
Even if it is often obvious "who done it," these mysteries and thrillers will pump up your heartbeat. For psychological thrillers (Incitement, The reports on Sarah and Saleem, Chained, Skin) to crime capers (Carbone, Hunting Elephants), there is something for every taste.
From a sharp satire (How About Adolf?) to tales of passion (The Reports on Sarah and Saleem, Gloomy Sunday) and sweet, endearing romcoms (Love in Suspenders, Inside Out) these films will bring out the romantic in you or remind you of an unrequited love.
Love may make the world go around, but music adds an important element in our lives. These films (Crescendo, The Song of Names, Gloomy Sunday, Canone Inverso, Inside Out) show us the power of music.
Documentaries dig deep into subject matter, often answering questions or even asking questions to which there is not yet an answer.
We offer several family-friendly films this March, including the delicious, coming-of-age dreamed Abe, the French drama Monsieur Batignole, The Samuel Project and several documentaries screening on Sunday, March 1. Always read the write-ups to make sure that the film is right for your youthful viewer.
Films, whether feature films or documentaries, can capture the heart of an issue facing society. Such films can be found throughout our line up and especially on March 8, our #StandUp Sunday screenings.
