An update from Film Night International

 To our valued patrons of Film Night International,

We hope everyone is well and keeping safe. 

Due to the ongoing health risks from COVID-19 and an anticipated fourth wave this autumn, FiNI has decided to put a pause on the resumption of screenings until at least January, 2022. 

The health and safety of audience members remains our top priority. In addition to this consideration, we recognize that continued limitations on audience sizes makes breaking even let alone fundraising for our local libraries almost impossible. 

As this situation continues to evolve, we will provide updates on our blog, Facebook page and through emails to members on our mailing list. 

We wish to remind you that your public library has a wonderful selection of films in its collection – many of them purchased with the revenue from our film days. These are available for you to borrow free of charge to watch in the comfort and safety of your home. 

We appreciate your continued patience during this challenging time.

Following the recent announcement that Ontario has now entered the second wave of COVID-19, Film Night International has made the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of our 2020-2021 season.

This decision comes down to the limited selection of new films available for booking through the Film Circuit, to reduced theatre capacity which would make it very challenging for us to cover our operating expenses let alone raise funds for the libraries and to a commitment to do our part to protect the health, safety and comfort of our audience members.

This whole COVID situation, of course, is constantly evolving, and when safety and circumstances permit, we anticipate a return to scheduling film days, hopefully in September, 2021.

Remember that your library has a collection of most of the films Film Night International has shown over the years. Check our list of Previously Screened Films on this page to find some that you may have missed when they were first screened.

We thank all of you for your ongoing support and hope to see everyone in the theatres again on the other side of the pandemic.

Any Spring 2020 membership not refunded will be valid for our next season.
