There will be no Brad Pitt.

But the organizers of the International Fly Fishing Film Festival (IF4) will be running a series of movies in Port Moody about the romance of the sport — much like the famous flick that Pitt starred in, A River Runs Through It.

On April 29, nine feature-length and short films from around the world will roll at the Inlet Theatre (100 Newport Dr., Port Moody) to build awareness about “the passion, lifestyle and culture of international fly fishing,” according to an IF4 news release.

The titles to be screened are: 

  • Caddis Magic
  • Farquhar
  • Out West
  • Casting Maya
  • A Season in the South
  • Flat Out
  • Into Blue
  • A Fly fishing Refugee
  • Home Waters

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for the 7 p.m. presentation. The movies can also be viewed virtually during the festival. 

For those who go in person, there will be fly-fishing swag prizes and other promotions. And attendees will have the chance to win a grand prize: fly fishing gear provided by the festival sponsors.

The IF4 was founded in 2011 to promote the sport.

Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door; access to the online show is $15 via
