CVAG film series opens with The Breadwinner

The Comox Valley Art Gallery’s 2018 winter film series will open Sunday, Jan. 14, with the Golden Globe-nominated animation The Breadwinner.

A Canadian-Irish-Luxembourgian animated drama, The Breadwinner follows the story of an Afghani girl who dresses as a boy so she can work to support her family.

The CVAG winter film series will present six titles from the Toronto International Film Festival. The series will include Bombshell: the Hedy Lamarr Story on Jan. 28, Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool on Feb. 11, The Divine Order on Feb. 25, Back to Burgundy on March 11, and The Leisure Seeker on March 25.

All screenings take place at 5 p.m. at the Rialto Cinema in Courtenay. The films frequently sell out, so purchasing advance tickets is recommended.

Tickets for individual films are $13 for CVAG members and $14 for non-members. Series passes for all six films are $72 for CVAG members and $78 for non-members.

Tickets are available at the CVAG shop at 580 Duncan Avenue, or by calling (250) 338-6211 ext. 1.
