What to Expect at Gimli Film Festival:

In 2017, the Gimli Film Festival (GFF) screened 151 films over the course of our 5-day festival, which included 92 short films and 59 feature films. In 2018, GFF will continue our spotlights on the best contemporary Canadian, Icelandic and International cinema. We will also continue our focused series on Social Justice Documentaries, Indigenous Perspectives and of course a strong focus on Manitoba-Made Cinema. In 2018, GFF plans to take strides towards gender parity at our festival, and so we are strongly urging all emerging and established female directors alike to reach out, contact us and submit their work!

As a festival we work hard to ensure that all films curated as part of the Gimli Film Festival are paid proper screening fees, and in 2017 we were delighted to be able to pay a travel stipend / speaking fee to all filmmakers traveling from across Manitoba and Canada to attend the Gimli Film Festival.

We also do our best to provide affordable film submission fees despite the considerable costs of running our annual festival. Filmmakers are encouraged to submit during the month of January, when our submission fees are at a reduced rate ($8 for short films / $20 for features)!
