Atlantic Film Festival

Heading into its twenty-fifth year, the Atlantic Film Fest has become one of the country’s most prominent cinematic events, happening each September. Evolving over the years from attracting a crowd of mainly cinephiles to attracting just about everyone, the festival has always had a discerning eye for quality and the city is better for it. “It’s encouraging to see the support for the events grow every year.” says the festival’s executive director Gregor Ash. “It’s a real honour to be chosen.”
