Twenty Feet From Stardom will conclude the Campbell River Film Festival on Nov. 19.

Film Festival returns for its 15th season

The Campbell River Festival of Films will launch its 2013 season

The Campbell River Festival of Films will launch its 2013 season in partnership with the Tidemark Theatre and the Toronto International Film Circuit.

The film festival will present its unique program of films and shorts on Tuesdays, Sept. 24, Oct. 8, Oct. 22, Nov. 12 and Nov. 19 at 7 p.m.  Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.

The 2013 season’s passes will go on Sept. 14 at the Tidemark Theatre ticket office and on-line at  The passes will sell for $45 and entitle the holder to five wonderful films plus a series of shorts and draws at each screening.  Individual tickets may be purchased at the door for $12 each.

The directors of the festival hope that by creating this partnership with the larger Tidemark Theatre venue more people will be able to enjoy the unique films and enjoy the wonderful ambiance of the Tidemark as well.  The doors open at 6:30 p.m. with movies starting at 7 p.m.  Patrons can gather in the lobby before and after the movie for a glass of wine and an opportunity to discuss the movie of the night with friends and other moviegoers.

The festival is a successful partnership that was established 15 years ago with the Toronto International Film Festival film circuit.  The partnership allows the Campbell River group to book films and shorts directly from Toronto that would not normally make their way to our Campbell River movie theatres.

This fall season begins with The Sapphires on Sept. 24 followed by Blackfish on Oct. 8.       Amour will be featured on Oct. 22 with The Angel’s Share playing on Nov. 12.  The season finale will be on Nov. 19 and that title will be Twenty Feet From Stardom.

The organizers want everyone to know that all the proceeds go directly back to the community.  Each year, bursaries and camera equipment are given out to local students and schools.  In previous years, the festival has also put on bonus screenings that have helped to raise thousands of dollars to support various worthwhile programs in Campbell River.

So on Saturday, Sept. 14, head down early to The Tidemark Theatre Box Office or buy on-line to get your seasons passes before they sell out. For further information, contact the Tidemark Theatre at or CRFF at
