I expected crap. Instead I laughed so hard!!! Bringing the folks this year. I’d bring Grandma too but she’s dead.Corey Burgess
When people grovel and ask for sponsor money you sometimes give in. But we had such a great time last year as sponsors that we’re bringing our staff and now clients this year! I guess that’s a bit of a gamble…Rob Harder
SHÄRT FOR – 2016 Has Almost Come!
Wow. Did we laugh! From France to Australia and Switzerland to River Heights… It’s another bigger year. Over the next week schedule details will be coming together. Last year was so much fun but sometimes new is good. There’s a few new things and a few of our favourites are back as we complete the schedule.
Firstly, we are screening That Mennonite Joke by Orlando Braun and featuring Matt Falk followed by a spirited discussion about comedy with Orlando, Matt and guests. You may remember Matt as that comedian from last years pre show warmup. That portion of the day is free along with pastries and coffee! More details here.
Secondly, our cocktail reception will be having our new friends at Half Pints Brewing Company come out to do some taster testing sampling with everyone. As usual there will be snacks and such for all to enjoy.
We are bringing back the Dirty Catfish Brass Band at the end of the cocktail reception to bring in the trophies and signal the start of the Screening Gala Awards Show at 7.30pm. Loud and horny, those boys know how to raise the energy.
This year we also welcome Frank Digital as a new Gold Sponsor this year along with our returning sponsors and Champions of the Fest, RBC / RBC Dominion / Aikins Law. Our full list of sponsors can be found on our sponsor page.
Now comes the February 27th festival!
Cheers and see you soon!
