FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Film Society will once again be bringing a number of films from the Toronto International Film Festival to the Energetic City this autumn.
The society brings films to the Aurora Cinema that might not otherwise get a showing in the Peace Region. The society’s Media Director Teela Gould says that group, which is a member of the TIFF festival circuit, aims to bring in movies that, though not mainstream blockbusters, are still highly acclaimed. Gould adds that last year’s movies were very talked-about for some time after their screenings, and says that some moviegoers continue to talk about them to this day.
According to Gould, this year’s film lineup carries a wide range of variety: from documataries, to apocalyptic dramas, to a Jane Austen comedy. She says that the first few movies this year are more mainstream-type films. Several of the films set to hit the silver screen have gotten 100% reviews from critics on the website rottentomatoes.com.
This year’s lineup:
- Love and Friendship – September 12th
- Sing Street – September 26th
- The Man Who Knew Infinity – October 3rd
- Into the Forest – October 17th
- Dark Horse – October 24th
- Sunset Song – November 7th
- Captain Fantastic – November 21st
- The Dressmaker – January 9th
All of this year’s films will be screened at the Aurora Cinema Centre 7:00 p.m. the night of each show. Tickets are $12.00 per show or $50.00 for a five-screening flex card. The flex card can be shared between moviegoers as well.
