Guide to the 2017 Kingston Canadian Film Festival

Kingston Canadian Film Festival 2017When I first graduated from Queen’s School of Music in 2003, one of my recurring gigs was performing solo violin as a prelude to films in The Kingston Canadian Film Festival. At the time there were about 3 theatres showing 6-10 films over the course of three days. Boy, has KCFF ever come a long way since then! Now, in its 17th season, KCFF is going strong, featuring a wide variety of Canadian films, including films by ygk filmmakers Dorit Naaman, Jay Middaugh and Brent Nurse; workshops and musical performances. The festival also includes receptions where ticket holders can mix and mingle with filmmakers, guests, sponsors, volunteers, staff, and other audience members. Tickets can be purchased individually and in various packages. Find out more here. See you there!
