Each year, we enjoy kicking off the festival with a special film at the Vogue and then having an Opening Reception Gala at the Central Bar next door. This year we're especially looking forward to screening a made-in-BC film, "Eadweard" and to welcoming two special guests, producer and co-writer Josh Epstein and Fernie's own award-winning costume designer, Flo Barrett (Flo won a Leo award for Best Costume Design in a Feature Film for Eadweard.)
We hope you can join us! Opening Night Tickets will be available from Tues. Jan. 5th - Fri. Jan. 15th (9am - 3pm weekdays) at the Arts Station. They're just $15 and include the film and a complimentary drink and appies at the Central following the show. Or get a Festival Pass ($40 or $35 for Arts Station members) and enjoy full access to all films and events throughout the weekend. Festival passes will also be available from Jan. 5th - Jan. 15th at the Arts Station.
