We have our popular Screen One monthly film series at the Uptown Theatre the first Wednesday and Thursday of every month, where we showcase an international line up of cinematic gems. On the third Thursday of the month there is our Dinner & Movie program which provides the opportunity to enjoy a special menu at one of the participating restaurants and an independent film (film tickets and meals sold separately). The Reel Stories winter mini-festival returns downtown February 5 to 7, 2016 where we present the most current in documentary and fact-based films. During the summer months we offer free outdoor screenings on Barrie’s waterfront. From October 14 to 23, 2016 we will be hosting our 19th annual ten-day festival at venues throughout the City of Barrie. This autumn film festival includes over 34 screenings, a Short Film Competition, guest Q&As and receptions

With over a 150 public events and screenings per year, there are many opportunities to enjoy award-winning and festival favorites on the big screen. Come see what the wide world of cinema has to offer.

A heartfelt thank you, the Barrie Film Festival would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors.

Shining the spotlight on one of our valued friends and contributors - Theta TTS, supporter of the BFF19 Opening Night Film and Party.

Opening Night Film - ANGRY INUK Oct 14, 7 pm, Barrie Uptown Theatre

BFF19 begins with our opening night film ANGRY INUK, a powerful documentary about how Inuit are deeply affected by the anti-sealing movement. This film won this year’s Audience award at Hot Docs.

We are honoured to have both director Alethea Arnaquq-Baril and Aaju Peter - who are both featured in the film - in attendance for a post-film Q&A at Uptown Theatre.

Opening Night Party: After the film head up the street to Hooligans Restaurant - Barrie for an exclusive evening of trailer previews and teasers, a delicious selection of hors d’oeuvres from Chef Rowell Ragudo, music from DJ Casey George, surprises and door prizes.
