The 25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World, 2019

MovieMaker Coolest Film Festival Festivals

Gimli Film Festival 

July 2020 / Gimli, Manitoba /

Showcasing the works of Manitobans and Canadians (and beyond) for the last 18 years, this film festival offers features and documentaries and hosts competitions with cash prizes. Films are screened in four indoor venues in addition to “RBC Sunset Screenings.” “They show movies projected on a giant floppy screen on the beach,” explains a panelist. “It’s a bring your own chairs and beers situation. Local luminary Guy Maddin (My Winnipeg) traipses over from his nearby cottage to introduce movies and make you laugh, and weep. You’ll probably never get there yourself—they don’t have the money to fly you in—but they’ll send you T-shirts, water bottles, and stickers and e-mail you sweet thank you notes!” The 2019 fest will also present Cinema Outside the Box, an exploration of cinema beyond single-channel film that includes live multimedia performances, art installations, and VR projects.

    The Artis Center in Naples, Fl is really extraordinary. It’s the hub of performing arts, music, and film in Southwest Florida. It’s the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and Boston Symphony all in one – with art and entertainment for all ages. One of the things that impressed me most was the cultural campus for children, with programs for art and music in the form of summer camps, infusing art and music (and the importance of it) at a young age.
