2018 CFF: Final updates

We added a screening of Phantom of the Paradise, one of our favorite films, with star Jessica Harper in attendance, that’ll take place on Saturday, April 14 at 10:00 PM.  There are currently only 25 tickets remaining.

The White World According to Daliborek was canceled due to an unforeseen conflict with Hot Docs, but we wish them the best because that film is absolutely incredible.  The  bonkers horror/comedy Vidar the Vampire will now screen that night, Tuesday, April 24.

Advance tickets for An Evening with the Satanic Temple have sold out, there will be a limited number of standing room-only tickets available at the door on the night-of.

The 7:00 PM screening of Best F(r)iends with Greg Sestero is sold out, a 10:00 PM has been added for that same night.  The 7:30 PM live script reading of The Room has also sold out and there will be an additional 10:00 PM installment that night.
