Have you ever wanted to attend the star-studded Toronto International Film Festival, to watch some of the most influential, avant-garde and creative movies to be made?
We can’t send you to Toronto to enjoy this spectacle but the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre can bring the movies to you!
Between Feb.22 and April 4, you can catch award-winning films out of the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) playing at our very own Frank Slide Interpretive Centre (FSIC) historic site!
Normally, FSIC is known for its ability to captivate visitors through programs and presentations about the infamous 1903 rock avalanche that killed more than 90 people and buried part of the town of Frank in southern Alberta. The Frank Slide is Canada’s deadliest rockslide.
Over the course of eight weeks, FSIC will be captivating a new audience of movie lovers interested in watching three award-winning films presented at TIFF 2015.
The Crowsnest Pass Allied Arts Association, in partnership with the Allied Arts Council of Pincher Creek has, for years, been sponsoring TIFF movies, and presenting them in Crowsnest Pass and Pincher Creek.
This year, as the Allied Arts film series enters its 15th year, the FSIC has been given the opportunity to host three TIFF movies for the first time!
What’s playing? When?
The following movies will be shown in the FSIC theatre between Feb. 22 and April 4:
- “Remember” will play Feb. 22 at 7 p.m.;
- “James White” will play March 21 at 7 p.m.; and
- “Our Loved Ones” will play April 4 at 7 p.m.
Tickets will be sold at the door only (no online purchases) so please ensure you arrive ahead of time to purchase your tickets!
Why these films?
A committee chooses each season’s feature films from the TIFF’s selection list, and brings critically acclaimed Canadian and international movies to the culturally enthusiastic inhabitants of Alberta.
Take a quick look at this season’s “Meet Me at the Movies” poster for a glimpse of what’s going to pass throughout the rest of Crowsnest Pass and nearby Pincher Creek.
Staff members at the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre are thrilled to host award-winning movies, and not just because they have a love affair with critically acclaimed films; they want to reach deeper into the community they call home.
Joining a winning team
The Allied Arts Associations from Crowsnest Pass and Pincher Creek have worked hard to build a loyal following for their “Meet Me at the Movies” film series.
We hope you can join us!
