GFF – A Unique Experience
No other fi lm festival on earth has a giant screen in the lake, showing the very best in film every night from the beach. It’s free, and so are the added attractions of northern lights and spectacular stars, on the screen and in the sky. The 4 indoor venues are within easy walking distance of each other, and show the absolute best features, docs and shorts from Canada and around the world.
Outdoor Beach Screenings – What to Bring
Only at GFF can you watch fantastic features and dynamite documentaries on the huge 11-meter screen in the lake. Screenings start after sunset, but it’s a good idea to arrive early. Most importantly, bring your friends and family, along with a blanket and (low) chairs. A little bug stuff might not hurt, either.
You’ll be happy to hear that all the indoor venues are air-conditioned. Bring your Wristband (or your cash), along with your Festival Program, and arrive in plenty of time. Wristband holders have priority seating up until 15 minutes before show time. After that, it’s rush seating for everybody.
Single tickets are $10 each – cash only unless otherwise posted.
Where Do I Get my Wristband, Program or Single Ticket?
Wristbands and Programs are available at the RBC Box Office located Unit 3-40 Centre Street in Gimli. The RBC Box Office is open from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM starting July 1st, 2013. Please note: a limited number of Wristbands will be made available this year.
Single tickets – this is important! – are available ONLY at the individual venues, 15 minutes before the show starts. Winnipeg fans can pick up their Wristband and program at the On Screen Manitoba office – 003-100 Arthur Street. Office hours are 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday to Friday.

Are the films rated?
Yes, the films are rated by the Manitoba Film Classification Board. If there isn’t a rating in this program, there will be one available at the screening.
