The winter season of the Campbell River Festival Film kicks off with Foce Majeure on Jan. 20.

Give the Festival of Film this Christmas

The Festival is the result of a successful partnership that was formed 18 years ago with the Toronto International Film Festival

Looking for the perfect gift?

Well look no further.

The Campbell River Festival of Film is now selling their winter season’s passes in time for Christmas.  The passes are available at the Tidemark box office or online www.tidemarktheatre.com and sell for $45 plus tax and applicable fees.  They entitle the holder to five wonderful films and include a series of dynamic shorts and draws at each screening.

The Festival is the result of a successful partnership that was formed 18 years ago with the Toronto International Film Festival Film Circuit.

This 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.

The organizers want everyone to know that all the proceeds go directly back into our community!  Each year, bursaries and equipment are given to local students and schools.  Equipment has also been donated to the Tidemark Theatre to help make it possible to showcase these great films.

The winter season will start Jan. 20 with Force Majeure followed by Pride on Feb. 3. Foxcatcher will be featured on Feb. 17 with Mommy playing on March 3. The season finale will be on March 10 and that title will be CitizenFour.

The festival organizers are also planning an extra sixth film called Mr. Turner on March 24 that will be presented as a benefit screening to raise funds for the Campbell River Art Gallery.

This year’s winter season’s pass comes with an additional bonus.  Several restaurants have partnered with the festival to offer a dinner and a movie experience.  When you buy your pass you will also get special discounts at these wonderful restaurants on movie nights.

So, by purchasing a pass you support your community, view a variety of quality films and have the opportunity to save money on a dinner out.  If you give this pass as a gift you wrap all this goodness into a present that keeps on giving well into March. It’s time to put on your Santa hat and head down to the Tidemark Theatre box office to buy your season’s passes.

Don’t forget you can also purchase them online. To buy your Season Pass or for further information, please contact the Tidemark Theatre at www.tidemarktheatre.com or at camrivff@gmail.com .
