THURSDAY, OCT. 12, 2017 – A MAN CALLED OVE, 4:15 AND 7:15 PM
Ove is the quintessential angry old man next door.

Enter a boisterous young immigrant family moving in next door and an unlikely friendship forms. Through their relationship we come to understand Ove’s past unhappiness and heartbreaks and what emerges is a heartwarming tale of unreliable first impressions and the gentle reminder that life is sweeter when it is shared.

THURSDAY, SEPT. 14, 2017 – THE BIG SICK, 4:15 AND 7:15 PM

Based on the real-life courtship between Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, The Big Sick tells the story of Pakistan-born aspiring comedian Kumail, who connects with grad student Emily after one of his standup sets. However, what they thought would be just a one-night stand blossoms into the real thing, which complicates the life that is expected of Kumail by his traditional Muslim parents. Funny, heartfelt and intelligent, The Big Sick uses its appealing leads and cross-cultural themes to prove the standard romcom formula still has some fresh angles left to explore. Great performances including the excellent supporting cast of both sets of parents, especially Holly Hunter and Ray Romano. Highly rated 98% on Rotten Tomatoes Critics website. US, 119 min, Rated R for language.

Passes for the 2017-18 season will be available at this film priced at $70 for 10 feature films. Please consider supporting us by buying a pass - it’s the best way to ensure you will get to see every film.

THURSDAY, APRIL 13, 2017 – MANCHESTER BY THE SEA, 4:15 AND 7:15 PM
Casey Affleck plays Lee Chandler in an Oscar-winning performance about a reclusive handyman who must face his painful past when he returns to his Massachusetts hometown after the sudden death of his beloved older brother. Also starring Michelle Williams, Kyle Chandler and Lucas Hedges as his spirited 16 year-old nephew for whom he is unexpectedly named sole guardian. Highly rated by critics at 96% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, it is a richly layered character study but definitely not a “sunny” film. Although it has very heavy subject matter there are a few lighter teenage antics moments. Todd McCarthy of the Hollywood Reporter writes, “A wrenching family tragedy is dramatized with the depth of a high-quality American stage piece in Manchester By the Sea”. USA, Rated R, 136 min.

She recognizes no obstacles and refuses to have her ambition denied. Documentary, UK/Mongolia, Rated G – perfect for families. .

THURSDAY, JUNE 9, 2016 – THE LADY IN THE VAN 4:15 AND 7:15 PM
A man forms an unexpected bond with a transient woman living in her car parked in his driveway in this often humorous “mostly true” story. When we see vagrants sleeping in doorways or homeless people on the street we often wonder how they got there. Was it a gradual descent due to drink or drugs? Or was it an ‘explosive decompression’ – an event so dramatic that it capsized an otherwise stable existence? In a gripping pre-title sequence, it is the latter that sets up the back-story for Miss Shepherd – the titular “Lady in the Van” played by the marvelous Dame Maggie Smith. UK, Rated PG-13, 104 min.

At Northern Lights Performing Arts Pavilion, Haliburton Highlands Secondary School, 5358 County Road 21, Haliburton, ON. Tickets at the door are $10.

THURSDAY, MAY 12, 2016 - SPOTLIGHT 4:15 AND 7:15 PM

When the Boston Globe’s tenacious “Spotlight” team of reporters delves into allegations of abuse in the Catholic Church, their year-long investigation uncovers a decades-long cover-up at the highest levels of Boston’s religious, legal and government establishment, touching off a wave of revelations around the world. With an amazing ensemble cast and winner of the 2016 Oscar for Best Picture, Spotlight is both a very good film and an important one.

Filmed mostly in Toronto with the Globe & Mail building subbing for the Boston Globe. Canada/USA, Rated R for some language including sexual references.

DOC(K) DAY - HALIBURTON DOCUMENTARY FILM FESTIVAL – SAT., APRIL 9, 2016
The 5th annual Haliburton Documentary Film Festival (Doc(k) Day) is fast approaching. Starting at 10 am Saturday, April 9th at the Northern Lights Performing Arts Pavilion in Haliburton, we offer four compelling documentaries which will surprise and inspire viewers with the theme of “doing the undoable”. With a Skype interview and director’s talk, this event will truly fascinate. Passes for the day are a low price of $25 for 4 movies and tickets for each film will also be available at the door for $10. We have a special price of $5 for our 10 am film which we felt families may enjoy. Bring your family and friends and we hope to see you there!

All the Time in the World – Saturday, Apr. 9th, 2016 at 10 am (Documentary) 88 min.
In search of a new perspective, a family of five leave the comforts of home to live in the Yukon wilderness during the long northern winter. The parents leave their jobs and take their three children, ages 10, 8 and 4, to spend nine months in a small cabin with no road access, no electricity, no running water, no internet, no TV, no phone and, most importantly, no clocks or watches. Featuring the unique perspectives of the children, All the Time in the World explores the theme of disconnecting from hectic and technology-laden lives in order to reconnect with self, each other, and our natural environment.

How to Change the World – Saturday, Apr. 9th, 2016 at 1:30 pm (Documentary) 110 min.
In 1971 a brave group of young activists set sail from Vancouver in an old fishing boat. Their mission: to stop Nixon's atomic bomb. It was from these humble but courageous beginnings that the global organization that we now know as Greenpeace was born. Chronicling the fascinating untold story behind the modern environmental movement, this gripping film tells the story of eco-hero Robert Hunter and how he, alongside a group of like-minded and idealistic young friends in the '70s, would be instrumental in altering the way we now look at the world and our place within it.

Meru – Saturday, Apr. 9th, 2016 at 4 pm (Documentary) 90 min.
Three elite climbers struggle to find their way through obsession and loss as they attempt to climb Mount Meru, one of the most coveted prizes in the high stakes game of Himalayan big wall climbing. MERU is the story of an expedition through nature's harshest elements, complicated inner demons, and ultimately on to impossible new heights.

Blind Spot: Moments Unseen – Saturday, Apr. 9th, 2016 at 7:30 pm (Doc) 90 min.
There is more to seeing than sight. This award-winning vision-quest documentary features three visually impaired adventurers who journey by horseback into the heart of the Andes. The environment awakens the blind riders’ and their sighted guides’ untapped senses. This juxtaposition of perceptions expands our perspective on how to interpret everyday obstacles. Blind Spot: Moments Unseen defies the conventional views on blindness to chronicle a voyage of self-discovery chronicling what we see, what we can’t see, and what we overlook. Q&A with the Director, Stefan Morel, and Producer, Leslie Haller, to follow.

The results astonished the world, as participants went from middle-class undergrads to drunk-with-power sadists and submissive victims in just a few days. Based on the real-life research of Dr. Zimbardo (who was a consultant on the film), The Stanford Prison Experiment is a dramatic period piece that remains relevant over 40 years later. Starring Billy Crudup (as Dr. Zimbardo) and a cast of young up-and-coming actors (Tye Sheridan, Ezra Miller). USA, (Drama/Thriller), 122 min. Rated R for abusive behaviour and some sexual references.

At the Northern Lights Performing Arts Pavilion, Haliburton. Tickets are $10 at the door.

FILM FESTIVAL WEEKEND – NOV. 13-15, 2015
The 9th annual Haliburton International Film Festival is fast approaching. Next year, we’re celebrating our TENTH year with some special festivities but this year’s line up is definitely one of our best, with EIGHT exceptional movies taking us around the world from Poland, Belgium, France, Spain, England, the U.S. and Canada.
And once again, the Haliburton Highlands Grannies will be serving coffee, tea, snacks and baked goods throughout the weekend, with all proceeds going to the Stephen Lewis Foundation for their African AIDS work partnering with grandmothers in Africa.
The festival starts off Friday night with a British comedy/drama, WHAT WE DID ON OUR HOLIDAY, followed by IDA, a moving drama and the winner of the 2015 Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. We return Saturday morning at 10 for MOMMY, a riveting drama from acclaimed Quebec director, Xavier Dolan, followed by a lovely Spanish comedy, LIVING IS EASY WITH EYES CLOSED, set in 1966 about a teacher’s journey in search of John Lennon. Saturday afternoon, we’re showing TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT, with a wonderful performance by Marion Cotillard (Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose) about community and solidarity, directed by the Dardenne brothers. Our evening feature is THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING, a timely documentary about the climate crisis directed by Avi Lewis (Stephen Lewis’s son) based on his wife, Naomi Klein’s book of the same name. Sunday’s wind up films include the hilarious (but a bit off-colour) film, CLOUDBURST, at 10 am followed by a wonderful documentary which we just managed to pick up in September in Sudbury – AL PURDY WAS HERE. Al Purdy is sometimes referred to as “Canada’s unofficial Poet Laureate” and the film is interwoven with music and interviews with Canada’s leading artists and musicians such as Leonard Cohen, Bruce Cockburn, Margaret Atwood and Gordon Pinsent.
A Wrap Party following the film will be held at McKeck’s and will feature Haliburton’s own Dead Poets doing some readings of Purdy’s poetry and their own. Passholders and guests will enjoy a lovely menu of featured “wraps” and appetizers. Call 705-286-2644 or 705-286-3696 to reserve your pass now – there are a very limited number of passes still available at the bargain price of $40. That’s really the only way to ensure that you will see all the films you want as a limited number of door tickets to the movies will be sold at $10 each just prior to the showing. For more information, check the website at www.haliburton-movies.com for details about each film and also watch the Haliburton International Film Festival (HIFF) Facebook page for updates and trailers.
