Outdoor Films

Catering to a broader audience, our Outdoor Screening programme strives to create special and accessible venues in public spaces with family-friendly movie screenings presented free-of-charge to the Barrie community. These screenings are a good fit in collaboration with the Downtown BIA’s Lawn Chair Luminata: Waterfront series, which brings together theatre, music, film and art set in various downtown locations. See below for outdoor screenings in our area.

Do you want to host your own outdoor screening?

The Barrie Film Festival also does bookings which includes our technical crew that set up/tear down and operate film nights outdoors.

All films shown must have copyright licensing rights obtained before showing publicly, which we can help you with as well.

We can also host pop up drive-in outdoor screenings.
