Tonight is all about horror at the 15th annual Gimli Film Festival.
A screening of “It Follows” will begin at 8 p.m. at Lady of the Lake Theatre. The film is a multi-layered horror flick that focuses on the lost innocence of a carefree teenager who becomes infected by a fatal curse.
“The Editor” runs at 10:30 p.m. at the Late Night “Pizza, Beer and a Movie” event in Johnson Hall. The slasher-gore film, produced by Winnipeg film collective Astron-6, centres on a once-prolific film editor who finds himself the prime suspect in a series of murders.
If horror films aren’t your thing, a more family-friendly kids’ night will include Jim Henson’s “Labyrinth.”
The RBC Beach Boardwalk also begins tonight, offering a free treasure-trove of family-oriented games, music, and booths every single evening of the festival. The fun starts at 7:30 p.m. and runs until 9:30 p.m.
Friday at the festival:
- “Monty Python & the Holy Grail” at 10 p.m. and “Alien” at midnight.
- “Amy” — a documentary from the UK about the life and death of singer Amy Winehouse, 10 p.m.
- “Home Cooked Music” documentary by local filmmaker Mike Maryniuk, followed by a musicians jam at the Ship and Plough, using a variety of instruments made from household items, featured in the film.
