Gordon Lightfoot: If You Could Read My Mind

September 24

Gordon Lightfoot: If You Could Read My Mind will delight any music fan. After all, Gordon Lightfoot is undoubtedly a gifted musician and storyteller. Canada loves him, and Lightfoot loves Canada. Directors, writers, and producers Martha Kehoe and Joan Tosoni take us on a journey back to the artist’s heyday — and an emerging folk scene in Yorkville, Toronto — with a treasure trove of archival footage and interviews with many of Lightfoot’s contemporaries, while Lightfoot himself refl ects back on his life: the songs, the creative process, and the regrets.

An Evening of Short Films

November 12

Campbell River Festival of Films is pleased to present a special evening of award winning short films.

Every year an independent group of Canadian film insiders and enthusiasts choose and judge films from across the country for a celebration of the best in Canadian cinema. While it’s sometimes hard for Canadian feature films to get noticed, it’s even more difficult to get noticed as a short filmmaker. Short films are rarely profitable, and are often screened solely at festivals. However, they often pack insight and emotional punch in a few short minutes. They are often an early indicator of emerging film-making talent.

With films less than half an hour in length (and in many cases, considerably less), the best short filmmakers produce works of art and/or narrative depth that are borne from a love of filmmaking and storytelling. Short films are the medium of choice to communicate ideology, vision, style and much more. Join us for an exceptional evening of visual storytelling!

Wild Rose

November 26

In this inspiring comedy-drama, a would-be country singer dreams of leaving her dreary, workaday Glasgow life for the bright lights of Nashville. Rose-Lynn Harlan (TIFF 2017 Rising Star Jessie Buckley, Beast) has dreamt of becoming a country music star for as long as anyone can remember. But Glasgow isn’t exactly Nashville, and, as a convicted criminal and single mother of two young children, Rose-Lynn is more country song than country star.
