The lineup for the 13th annual Gimli Film Festival has been announced, setting the stage for five days of film screenings in the lakefront community.
This year’s offerings will present a mix of documentaries, dramas, and beach films, including the Canadian premiere of two Icelandic films — “Black’s Game” and “A Boy Like Her: A Personal Story About an Unavoidable Journey.” Festival-goers will also be treated to the Western Canadian premier of “Allez Eddy,” and the Manitoba premieres of “The Act of Killing” and “Muscle Shoals.”
“We are incredibly excited about this years lineup,” said festival director Cheryl Ashton. “We brought back Joy Loewen in the role as feature film programmer and partnered with the National Screen Institute — Canada (NSI), who took on the role as festival shorts programmer. We’re delighted to shine a bright light on homegrown talent at this year’s festival.”
The popular beach screenings on the giant 35-foot outdoor screen will “Still Mine” starring James Cromwell.
