Outdoor festival to feature free films

The Windsor International Film Festival will screen 20 feature films over three days outdoors this weekend. WIFF Under the Stars is free and will be the first community event on the lawn of the civic plaza outside City Hall.

“We can’t wait to be back downtown to share films with our audience, in a new and exciting location this summer,” says UWindsor professor Vincent Georgie, the festival’s executive director. “With our great selection of films, there is truly something for everyone to enjoy.”

Running Friday to Sunday, June 9 to 11, the screenings are part of a full weekend of community programming that also includes the city’s 131st birthday celebration, the annual Mayor’s Walk along the waterfront, and Meet-A-Machine at the WFCU Centre.

The WIFF Under the Stars line-up promises family-friendly selections, Hollywood blockbusters, and Canadian content, including Adult Adoption, a drama filmed in Kingsville. Find a full schedule on the festival website.
