Friday evening will be the big gala, with some exciting new changes planned for this year’s event. Organizers are also considering introducing a theme to up help spark a higher attendance.

Saturday’s events will feature a performance by Vancouver band, and Rossland favourite, Bend Sinister.

Stay tuned for more details as the film fest approaches.
