The Atlantic Film Festival is a champion of Atlantic Canadian filmmakers. In keeping with this promise, every month we profile some of the most incredibly talented people in the filmmaking industry today. This month, we look at Newfoundland director Christian Sparkes and his film Cast No Shadow.
AFF Outdoor Film Experience
Who can resist a night under the stars with a classic movie and the smell of popcorn wafting through the air? Whether young or old, local or visiting, the AFF Outdoor Film Experience fits the bill for good times.
It’s outdoors. It’s movies. It’s an unforgettable Experience!
For the past 13 years, on Friday nights from mid-July to the end of August, the Atlantic Film Festival has delivered an entertaining outdoor film experience throughout the Halifax – a larger-than-life inflatable screen showing classic movies under the open sky. With as many as 2000+ movie-goers coming together for each screening – all toting their lawn chairs, blankets, picnics and favourite company – this open-air cinema has a unique festival atmosphere that must be experienced first-hand.
Our programmers are constantly dreaming up an engaging theme for the next series. In recent years, our Summer of … theme has been very popular. People are always trying to guess what it will be!
While the theme changes from one year to the next, the objective remains:
• to bring the community together.
• to enjoy the film viewing experience in unique outdoor settings.
• to set the stage for the upcoming Atlantic Film Festival.
