Incendies may have lost the Oscar last week but the critically acclaimed movie will be in the spotlight to launch the 11th annual Port Moody Canadian Film Festival tomorrow (Thursday).
The French-Canadian drama directed by Denis Villeneuve tells the tale of a dead woman who leaves her adult twin children two letters to deliver: one to the father they thought had died and the other to a brother they didn't know lived.
Ticket holders for Incendies can join in the festival's gala opening at 7 p.m. Thursday in the city hall galleria (100 Newport Dr.).
Other films presented during the four-day festival are: Cooking with Stella (Friday, 7 p.m.); Fathers and Sons (Friday, 9 p.m.); Force of Nature, the David Suzuki Movie (Saturday, 7 p.m.); Chloe (Saturday, 9:30 p.m.); and Gunless (Sunday, 7 p.m.).
After Gunless, the festival wraps up with a party; the People's Pick will also be announced.
All feature films will be preceded by a short Canadian flick.
Tickets at $7 - plus a $5 annual membership fee to the Port Moody Film Society - are available at the Inlet Theatre (100 Newport Dr., Port Moody) on show nights, starting at 6 p.m. (cash or personal cheque only).
