CR Festival of Films Announces Winter Season

The Eagle Huntress

The Campbell River Festival of Films has finalized the winter season and is now selling their winter season’s passes. The Film Festival will present its unique program of films and shorts every other Tuesday at the Tidemark Theatre in new year until the end of March. Festival passes are available at the Tidemark box office or online at and sell for $50 plus taxes and applicable fees. They entitle the holder to five wonderful films and draws at each screening.

The Campbell River Festival of Films is the result of a successful partnership with the Toronto International Film Festival Film Circuit and the Tidemark Theatre. This partnership allows the Campbell River group to book films directly from Toronto that would not normally make their way to our Campbell River movie theatres and show them in the newly renovated and updated Tidemark Theatre.

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 begins with The Eagle Huntress on January 24.   Executive producer Daisy Ridley narrates this visually stunning documentary about Aisholpan, a 13-year-old girl who becomes the first female in twelve generations of her Kazakh family to become an eagle hunter, and rises to the pinnacle of a tradition that has been handed down from father to son for centuries.   Featuring stunning cinematography by Simon Niblett, this riveting documentary from director Otto Bell is a rare look at one of the world’s last true wildernesses.

So, head down early to the Tidemark Theatre Box Office or log in online to purchase your winter season passes before they sell out!  For further information, please contact the Tidemark Theatre at or CRFF at
