The Comox Valley Art Gallery’s Winter 2014 Film Series is set to start this January.

Film Series Passes are now available in the CVAG Gift Shop, just in time to make an awesome gift for someone (or yourself) this holiday season. The Film Series, an ongoing fundraiser for CVAG, screens films fresh from the Toronto International Film Festival through TIFF - Film Circuit.

The film dates are: Jan. 12, Jan. 26, Feb. 9, Feb. 23, March 9 and March 23. All films are on Sundays at 5 p.m. at the Rialto Theatre in Courtenay.

What is TIFF - Film Circuit?

Founded in 1989, Film Circuit is TIFF's successful film outreach program, bringing the best of international and Canadian films to communities across the country. Film Circuit encompasses over 180 groups in over 160 communities across Canada and provides filmgoers an opportunity to see films that may not otherwise be available in their region.

For updates and more information on the film selections, visit  www.comoxvalleyartgallery.com, follow CVAG on Twitter at twitter.com/CVAGFilm or call 250-338-6211.
