Where We’re At

Hello, fans of film. We miss you, our audience at the Evans Theatre. It’s been a tough year and we still have a ways to go.

We, the volunteers of the Brandon Film Festival, realize that going to the movies, right now, in the middle of a pandemic, is not a priority.

As much as we miss going to the movies with you and enjoying the experience of the cinema, as much as it pains us to say it, we just can’t screen films at the Evans this fall.

Keep the faith, Evans fans. We want to gather in the dark with a bag of popcorn and lose ourselves in a great story told by great film-makers too.

However…

Here’s how you can still enjoy new ground-breaking film right now: Visit the website of the Toronto International Film Festival.

The Brandon Film Festival is part of Film Circuit, TIFF’S national outreach program, and some of the films you—yes, you!—can watch this year could have been part of our fall film series. Please consider buying a digital ticket to one or more of their screenings to show your support for Canadian film. The deadline is coming up fast but you can virtually attend parts of this year’s festival. Imagine: going to TIFF without the flight, the hotel, and the quarantine!

We do plan to be back in 2021! In the meantime….wear a mask, wash your hands, stay at home, and we’ll see you at the movies. Soon.

With gratitude,
—the volunteers of the Brandon Film Festival/Evans Theatre
