Ain't No Party Like A Trailer Party!

You know how you're in the theatre about to watch a movie, and the trailers come on, and you think to yourself, "Man, that looks awesome! All these trailers are done so well!" And then you daydream about how entertaining it would be to just watch trailers the whole time, instead of the actual movie? They are made up of the best parts, after all....

Well, you can't prove it didn't happen, so we'll just have to assume it did. And that's why we want to invite you to the first official CIFF Trailer Party!

Held in a theatre and not actually in a trailer, we're heading to the Globe Cinema on Friday, September 9 to show off all the trailers for this year's lineup. Doors will open at 4:00 PM and the trailers will begin showing on a random loop at 4:30. You can come and go as you please, or mingle in the lobby while you enjoy some free popcorn and take a peek at our new custom Big Rock beer cans (did we mention that this will be fully licensed, too?). There'll be some food available, and we'll even have a perfect emcee as our friend Brock Mitchell, co-founder of DDG Productions and judge in this year's Youth By Youth Cinema series,  will be hosting from behind the microphone.  

To raise the stakes even higher, the first 100 attendees get a festival "Survival Pack", stocked full of some necessary supplies for long days of movie-watching. Cap it off by playing along in our film-themed scavenger hunt to win a 10-pack of general admission tickets!

For updates and all other information, pop over to the Facebook page for the event. Whether this is the first time you've heard of the festival, or you're a grizzled veteran of years past, it's the perfect way to get familiar with the films this year and to figure out which ones are at the top of your list to see. We'll catch you at the Globe in a few weeks!
