‘Weirdos’ – Cinefest 2017 Winter Program
Feb 14, 2017 7:00 pm
Weirdos, presented by the Columbia Arts Council, is the third film in the Cinefest 2017 Winter Program.
Canadian master filmmaker Bruce McDonald teams with writer/actor Daniel MacIvor for a coming-of-age road movie with a blend of magic and naturalism.
It’s July 1976 in Antigonish, Nova Scotia where music-loving 15-year-old Kit (Dylan Authorsm) spends time either listening to Elton John albums in his room or hanging out with his platonic girlfriend, Alice (Julia Sarah Stone). Craving a turning point in their lives, the two decide to hitchhike to Cape Breton to visit Kit’s glamorous but unstable mother, Laura (Molly Parker).
Through their quest for something bigger and better – both on the road and at their destination – they’ll face some truths about themselves that will point the way to a more honest, fully lived future. The film is suitable for all ages.
There will be a cash bar, light refreshments and popcorn available.
Tickets may be purchased online or at the door:
- Adults – $12

Doors open at 6:30 PM, film starts at 7 PM.
