Who can resist a night under the stars with a classic movie and waves lapping near by? Whether young or old, local or visiting, the Atlantic Film Festival – Outdoor Summer Film Series fits the bill for good times. It’s outdoors. It’s summer. It’s movies. And it’s fun.
For the past 12 years, on Friday nights from mid-July to the end of August, the Atlantic Film Festival has delivered an unforgettable film experience on the Halifax Waterfront – a larger-than-life inflatable screen showing classic movies in a unique outdoor setting. With thousands of movie-goers coming together for each screening – all toting their lawn chairs, blankets, picnics and favourite company – this open-air cinema has a unique festival atmosphere that must be experienced first-hand.
Festival programmers are constantly dreaming up a new theme for the next series. In recent years, our Summer of … theme has been very popular. But while the theme changes from one year to the next, the objective remains • to bring the community together, • to enjoy the film viewing experience in unique settings, and • to set the stage for the upcoming Atlantic Film Festival.
