The C. R. Festival of Film Pass is Truly a Gift!
By: infilm on 12/17/15

Looking for the perfect gift? Well look no further! The Campbell River Festival of Film is now selling their winter season’s passes in time for Christmas. The passes are available at the Tidemark box office or online www.tidemarktheatre.com and sell for $45 plus tax and applicable fees. They entitle the holder to five wonderful films and include a series of dynamic shorts and draws at each screening.

The Festival is the result of a successful partnership that was formed with the Toronto International Film Festival Film Circuit. This partnership 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 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 will start January 12th with the Oscar Buzz movie “Brooklyn” followed by “My Internship In Canada” on January 19th. “The Second Mother” will be featured on February 2nd with “45 Years” playing on February 16th. The season finale will be on March 1st and that title will be “Ram”.

The festival organizers are also planning an extra 6th film called “Snowman” on March 15th that will be presented as a benefit screening to raise funds for the Campbell River Search and Rescue. This film has many connections to Campbell River including the local filmmaker Mike Douglas and the main character Kevin Fogolin who plan to be in attendance at the screening of their film.

This year’s winter season’s pass comes with an additional bonus. Several restaurants have partnered with the festival to offer a dinner and a movie experience. When you buy your pass you will also get special discounts at these wonderful restaurants on movie nights.

So, by purchasing a pass you support your community, view a variety of quality films and have the opportunity to save money on a dinner out. If you give this pass as a gift you wrap all this goodness into a present that keeps on giving well into March.

It’s time to put on your Santa hat and head down to the Tidemark Theatre box office to buy your season’s passes. Don’t forget you can also purchase them online.
