The Gimli Film Festival is committed to bringing the magic and excitement of the world of film to the people of Gimli, Winnipeg, and the surrounding Interlake area. Our mandate is to provide enlightening, thought-provoking, and entertaining cinema experiences through premieres of the best new films from around the world and right here in Manitoba, and Canada.As the festival continues to grow, we are searching for ways to bring more films to more people. This year, we are hoping to add a new venue – our 6th! To realize this goal, we need to raise the funds to purchase the equipment to outfit our new theatre. To outfit our newest venue offering a quality cinema experience, we need:

  • 1080p home cinema projector
  • Cinema-quality ceiling mounted projection screen
  • Region-free Blu Ray player
  • Home theatre sound system

As a non-profit organization, it is only through your kind and gracious support that we can achieve our goal of outfitting our new venue and bringing you even more of the best in film! All donors will be recognized in the 2016 Gimli Film Festival program, and other printed media where sponsors are listed.
