Opening Night Film + Party Join us as we kick off our 10th anniversary with the Canadian feature LOWDOWN TRACKS with special performance by Maryanne Epp and the Cambridge Symphony Orchestra!

Based on the novel by Canadian writer Carol Shields, UNLESS stars Academy Award® nominated actress Catherine Keener as a mother whose eldest daughter Norah (Hannah Gross) suddenly drops out of college and is found on a Toronto street corner, with a hand-lettered cardboard sign reading ‘Goodness’ on her chest.

Celebrating Waterloo Region’s filmmaking talent, BICKERMAN’S GROVE is a satiric look at the choices we make and the consequences that may unfold. Join us for the World Premiere and a post-screening Q&A with Fable Forest Films' director Adrian Konstant and producer Jason Green.


If you're a returning volunteer, we look forward to seeing your smiling face again! If you are new to GRFF, please fill out our volunteer application form. Then join us at Volunteer Orientation Night:
Monday, October 3, 7pm
LOCATION: Wilfrid Laurier University, Bricker Academic Building, Room BA110

Kimberly was one of those children who probably spent too much time watching television and not enough time doing homework. it's this deep relationship with the silver screen that has informed much of her education and career up to this point.

Every time the theatre goes dim and the screen lights up, it is as if we join Dorothy and leave our pedestrian lives behind for the magic of Oz. For Paul Tortolo this captures his life-long love of cinema.
