Pack your blanket, pick some snacks and grab some friends – the Free-B Film Festival is back.
On Fridays and Saturdays starting Aug. 9, the Cameron Bandshell in Beacon Hill Park will be transformed into an outdoor movie space for everyone to enjoy.
The Victoria Film Festival is happy to celebrate its 20th anniversary of the Free-B event with a lineup of classic favourites including Hook, Jurassic Park and Mrs. Doubtfire.
“From the very beginning, Free-B was all about creating a playful line-up,” said Kathy Kay, festival director. “For us, it’s a favourite event at VFF and one of our longest-running, second only to the Film Fest in February.”
Screenings happen rain or shine, and usually see hundreds of viewers.
“It really is the coolest summer tradition in Victoria and we’re so pleased to have created an event that appeals to such a broad audience,” Kay said.
The fest will launch on Aug. 9 with Legally Blonde and continue on weekends until Aug. 24, with screenings starting at 9 p.m.
The rest of the lineup is as follows:
Aug. 10 – Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
Aug. 16 – Hook
Aug. 17 – Jurassic Park
Aug. 23 – Mrs. Doubtfire
Aug. 24 – Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
