What makes Gimli Film Festival screenings different?
Seeing an outdoor movie at the GFF is a one-of-a-kind experience. The Rogers Cinema Under the Stars 11 metre screen rises out of the water and the audience watches from the sand. The film starts as the sun sets, and on a good night the stars and the northern lights enhance your film experience.
The very best features, documentaries and shorts from Canada and around the world are featured in our four indoor venues. All four venues are within walking distance of central Gimli.
Roger’s Cinema Under the Stars Outdoor Beach Screenings
The Gimli Film Festival showcases entertaining documentaries, dramas and shorts from Manitoba, Canada, and the world. Our unique 11 metre outdoor screen on the shores of Lake Winnipeg is a main attraction, screening a feature film each night.
What should I bring?
All Access Pass holders, should bring your program guides – othewise, pick up at brochure at the RBC Gimli Film Festival Box Office and Information Centre! For the beach screenings you could bring a low beach chair or blanket. Bug spray is a good idea, although the breeze off the water discourages mosquitoes. Get there early to watch the sunset and ensure a good seat. (Low chairs are preferred)
