Winter 2018 IFF Films:

Porcupine LakePorcupine Lake
Sunday, February 4th at 5pm

(Canada) Porcupine Lake is a coming-of-age film about girlhood, first loves, and the complexities young people face as they enter adulthood. Bea and her mom, Ally, head to Georgian Bay for the summer to reunite with Scotty, Bea's dad and Ally's husband. After Ally encourages soft-spoken Bea to explore on her own, she quickly makes a new friend in the raucous Kate, a local girl who introduces Bea to a world that pushes her outside of her comfort zone — and sparks an attraction between the two. A coming-of-age film, where the beauty of the northern Ontario landscape ignites quintessential Canadian summer nostalgia for the youthful feeling of endless cottage days filled with adventure.

Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr StoryBombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story
Sunday, March 4th at 5pm

(USA) Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story looks deeper into the life of the screen legend, whose military and communication contributions went unrecognized for decades. An undiscovered genius, she pioneered a secret communication system intended to guide US torpedoes during WWII, which became the basis for contemporary technologies like GPS, Bluetooth, and WiFi. A woman ahead of her time, Lamarr not only paved the way for communication technology, but was one of the first women to produce her own films during a time when women were restricted to positions in front of the camera. The Hedy Lamarr Story is a trailblazing tribute to women whose contributions have gone unrecognized and an inspiration for future generations of female inventors to come.

A Man Called OveFilm Stars Don't Die in Liverpool
Sunday, April 8th at 5pm

(UK) Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool tells the story of Gloria Grahame who won a best supporting actress Oscar for her performance in 1952's The Bad and the Beautiful. She appeared in films alongside Humphrey Bogart, Robert Mitchum, Lana Turner, Kirk Douglas, and a bevy of other icons. Her star blazed brightly then faded quickly. How Grahame spent her later years is the subject of this beautiful — and rare — ode to life after fame. Drawing on the memoirs of her decades younger lover, Peter Turner, director Paul McGuigan creates a moving narrative of the erstwhile Hollywood star's time spent living in Liverpool in the 1970s.
