In May, the Windsor International Film Festival will return to Windsor’s Capitol Theatre with four films. This comes after a successful weekend of screenings in March.

“It just felt so wonderful and natural to be back in the Capitol Theatre showing world-class films,” said Vincent Georgie, WIFF Executive Director and Chief Programmer. “Being able to once again spill out into the lobby and then out into the city’s downtown core and discuss cinema is one of my favourite WIFF experiences.”

The screenings will take place from Thursday, May 12th to Saturday, May 14th and will feature Mothering Sunday, Everything Went Fine, Scarborough and Paris, 13th District.

The weekend of screenings will follow the Capitol Theatre’s COVID-19 safety protocols, which require all patrons aged 12 and over to provide proof of two vaccination doses, a mask worn at all times inside the building and a 50% reduction in capacity. The concessions will be closed, and washrooms will be open at a reduced capacity.
