The Arts Station’s film series line-up has been announced. Indie Films Fernie (IFF) screens at the Vogue Theatre on the first Sunday of every month (except in September when it is the second).
- September 10th – Maudie (2016; PG13) Maudie (Canada/Ireland) is an inspirational, based-on-fact tale of a young artist whose talent and determination allowed her to surmount the obstacles in her way. Constrained by the effects of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and sheltered by her overprotective family, Maud is determined to prove her independence. With the encouragement of one of Everett’s customers, Maud begins selling her cards and paintings and word of her talents spreads far beyond Nova Scotia. Buy your tickets here.
- October 1st – An Inconvenient Sequel (2017; PG) A decade after An Inconvenient Truth (2006) brought climate change into the heart of popular culture comes the riveting and rousing follow-up that shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution. A necessary essay from the sharp end of the global warming crisis. Buy your tickets here.
- November 5th – Their Finest (2016; R) The year is 1940, London. With the nation bowed down by war, the British ministry turns to propaganda films to boost morale at home. Catrin and Buckley set out to make an epic feature film based on the Dunkirk rescue starring the gloriously vain, former matinee idol Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy). Buy your tickets here.
- December 3rd – A Man Called Ove (Sweden, Swedish with English subtitles), the Best Foreign Film Oscar nominated Swedish film is an unabashed, unashamed crowd pleaser that will send audiences home with a smile on their face and a few tears in their eye. Ove is the terror of his suburban neighbourhood, where he used to be chairman of the residents’ association until he was voted out, something that he considers a betrayal and still can’t forgive.
