It’s show time!

The Reel North Island Film Festival continues this weekend with a showing of The Guard Saturday at Port Hardy Secondary School

PORT HARDY—The Reel North Island Film Festival, a monthly winter series hosted by the Grassroots Garden Society, continues this weekend with a showing of The Guard Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at the Port Hardy Secondary School small theatre.

Advance tickets are available for $8.50 at Cafe Guido and, if available, tickets will be sold at the door for $10. The 60-seat theatre opens its doors at 7 p.m. on show night to viewers 16 years and older only.

The Guard is a buddy/cop crime saga set in Ireland and starring Brendan Gleeson and Don Cheadle. February’s film is the French-Canadian Monsieur Lazhar. The North Island Reel Film Festival, started last fall to provide quality, pre-release films in Port Hardy, will continue into March.

Patrons are invited to follow the festival online through www.grassrootsgarden.org, www.tiff.net/filmcircuit, or on Facebook, to see which movie will be screened in March and to enter a monthly contest for free tickets.

In a twist on the traditional movie-going experience, audience members are encouraged to bring their own popcorn bowls, pop glasses and coffee mugs to movie nights, with the goal of zero garbage at the end of the night.

Funds generated from the film festival will benefit the See How We Grow partnership between North Island schools and the Grassroots Garden Society.
