Once again we've lined up a stellar collection of family-friendly films for our Free-B Film Festival, so get ready to curl up under the stars and enjoy free films on our 20-foot-wide inflatable screen. The first screening will take place on the Legislature lawn on August 1st!
 
Enjoy the liveliness of the Inner Harbour while watching the official kick-off film to the 14th Annual Free-B Film Festival! Chairs are not allowed on the lawns, so please bring your blankets.

Then the following Fridays and Saturdays in August, join us at The Cameron Bandshell in Beacon Hill Park where the whole family will enjoy our carefully selected films spanning the 30's all the way up to the 90's! And finally, for the last screening, we are taking it on the road...well, at least up the Pat Bay Highway to Broadmead Village! August 23rd, get set to watch one of the classic historic films shot right in the surrounding area of Saanich!
