Christopher Webster [Film Festival 09.01.10] Canada movie scifi horror cult western



Canada is getting another awesome genre film festival in Saskatoon's first annual Dark Bridges Film Festival! From September 24 - 26, 2010 programmer (and Row Three film blogger extrodinaire) John Allison presents the best in new horror, action, western, sci-fi, comedy and cult features from around the world.

I was going to hit the fest this year and cover the action, but can't due to a super secret project I'm working on. So, if you're a Quiet Earth reader from Saskatoon who has experience and wants to contribute reviews and updates from the event, leave a comment and we'll hook you up with a press pass.

Check out the line-up after the break.

Thanks for mentioning the festival. We are currently looking at setting up a deal with a hotel for discounted rates for anyone from out of town.

I would like to think we have a really cool fun range of films. The one I'm looking forward to most is seeing The Good, The Bad and The Weird back up on the big screen. I saw it at TIFF back in 2008 and it blew me away.

Please feel free to check out our facebook event page (http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/event.php?eid=102547473136724) and please let everyone know about the festival.
