The 20th Annual Cinema CNC Film Festival – March 18-20, 2016


Cinema CNC is pleased to be presenting the 20th Annual Cinema CNC Film Festival, March 18th to 20th, 2016 at the Prince George Playhouse.

Tickets are available as of February 29th, at Books and Company, The CNC Bookstore, and The UNBC Bookstore. The films are all confirmed; the dates and times are subject to change... they hope to have a guest for the festival and would like to highlight his/her film, so if you can be flexible, you're at an advantage. Regardless the festival brings in a lot of cinematic art not available to us here  for years at a a time.

The list of films and times [currently] posted here.

Featured this year is the TIFF selection, "Al Purdy was Here"
An icon of Canadian letters, Al Purdy was equal parts rock star, raconteur, and rabble-rouser: in other words, all poet. Coming to prominence in the 1960s alongside a crop of other extraordinary talents, Purdy scorned the tired tales of rural life that had dominated Canadian literature and set out to focus on contemporary Canadian experience. What emerges is a far more complex portrait of Purdy than was suggested by his public persona as the boisterous lover of booze, brawls, and verse, immortalized in his best-known poems.
