Campbell River Festival of Films Brings in the Best of TIFF


The Campbell River Festival of Films is launching its 2016 fall 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 the following Tuesdays – September 20th, October 4th, October 18th, November 1st and November 15th. All films start at 7:00 p.m. with doors opening at 6:30 p.m.

The 2015 season’s passes are on sale now at the Tidemark Theatre ticket office and on-line at  The passes will sell for $50 plus applicable fees 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.

This partnership with the Tidemark Theatre enables many people in our community to enjoy the unique films and also appreciate the wonderful ambiance of the theatre.  With the doors opening at 6:30 p.m. and movies starting at 7:00 p.m., patrons have time to gather in the lobby before the movie to enjoy a glass of wine and visit with friends and other moviegoers.

The Festival’s successful partnership the Toronto International Film Festival film circuit 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 proceeds go directly back to our community.  Each year, bursaries and camera equipment are given to local students and schools.  In previous years, the Festival has put on bonus screenings that have helped to raise thousands of dollars to support various worthwhile programs in Campbell River.

This fall season begins with Captain Fantastic on September 20th followed by Dark Horse on October 4th. Sing Street will be featured on October 18th with Closet Monster playing on November 1st . The season finale will be The Dressmaker on November 15th .

Captain Fantastic stars Viggo Mortensen as a devoted father who dedicates his life to transforming his six young children into extraordinary adults, deep in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, isolated from society  . But when a tragedy strikes the family, they are forced to leave this self-created paradise and begin a journey into the outside world that challenges his idea of what it means to be a parent and brings into question everything he’s taught them.
