The Windsor International Film Festival is expanding  it s popular WIFF 365’s monthly screenings with a summer series of weekly screenings.

“We launched WIFF 365 when we realized our community’s love for film couldn’t be confined to the festival season and we’re thrilled to discover even monthly screenings can’t meet the demand,” said Vincent Georgie, WIFF Executive Director and Chief Programmer. “Our audience told us they wanted a little more cinema in their summer and these weekly screenings will provide them an escape from the heat and one more reason to visit downtown Windsor.”

A total of 20 films will be shown at the Capitol Theatre on 15 dates from June through August.

The screenings will be on Thursdays with additional Saturday screenings on June 29th and August 10th to celebrate Canada Day and Pride Weekend.

The lineup includes a documentary about Aretha Franklin with never before seen footage of a church performance and a diverse array of titles with actors including Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, Julianne Moore, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Ethan Hawke and Kenneth Branagh.
