Sharkwater: Extinction is the final offering in the winter 2019 season of the Campbell River Festival of Film.

Campbell River Festival of Film announces its winter 2019 season

The Campbell River Festival of Film (CRFF) unveiled its 2019 winter season which it presents in partnership with the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and the Tidemark Theatre.

The CRFF has finalized its winter season line up and are now selling season’s passes. The passes are available at the Tidemark box office or online at www.tidemarktheatre.com and sell for $50 plus tax and applicable fees. These passes entitle the holder to five wonderful films and draws at each screening. Individual tickets for each film may be purchased for $12 each.

As in previous seasons, the CRFF will present a unique program of films on the following Tuesday evenings at 7:00pm:

Tues. Jan 29th – Shoplifters (121 minutes, Japanese w/English subtitles)

Tue. Feb 12th – Colette (112 minutes, English)

Tue. Feb 26th – Sir (99 minutes, Hindi, English, Marathi w/English subtitles)

Tue. Mar 5th – Capernaum (120 minutes, Lebanese w/ English subtitles)

Tue. Mar 19th – Sharkwater: Extinction (88 minutes, English)

The festival is a successful partnership with the Toronto International Film Festival film circuit, which allows the Campbell River group to book international films directly from Toronto that would not normally make their way to our Campbell River movie theatres.

The organizers want everyone to know that all proceeds go directly back to our community. Each year, bursaries and camera equipment are given back to local students and schools.

The Winter CRFF season kicks off with the critically acclaimed drama, Shoplifers on Jan. 29 so, head down to the Tidemark Box Office or go online at tidemarktheatre.com to purchase your seasons passes before they sell out! If you purchase your tickets on-line, please try to drop by the Tidemark before January 29th to pick them up. Otherwise we will have a long line up at the ticket counter on the first film night.

For further information, please contact the Tidemark Theatre (287.PINK) or CRFF at camrivff@gmail.com.
