We’re stoked to announce this year’s two film programs! Get ready to witness a selection of the best festival entries, award-winners, and crowd favorites straight from the Canadian festival scene.

The RED film program brings you 8 films straight from the Canadian festival scene. It’s a diverse mix of films with different themes and lengths that will keep you glued to the screen. Our awesome host will be there to introduce the festival and each film, plus they’ll be rockin’ some sick giveaways and more.

We’ll take a chill break around halfway through the evening for about 20 minutes. And don’t worry about the language barrier, because all the films either have English audio or English subtitles.
