Local partnership with Toronto International Film Festival celebrates 20 years of cinema in Cambridge

The Grand River Film Festival (GRFF) celebrates the 20th Anniversary of Cineseries Opening Night on Thursday, September 20 with the screening of THE CHILDREN ACT, at 7:30 pm. Cambridge audiences have had the opportunity to experience the very best in Canadian and International film for 20 years, thanks to the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) Film Circuit and the vision of Cambridge Art Galleries. In 1998, past gallery director Mary Misner met with TIFF Film Circuit staff, realizing the importance of bringing quality films to this community. As part of the circuit, which provides access to films to over 190 groups in 150 communities across Canada, CineSeries has presented a wide variety of genres including documentary, international and homegrown films.

This book-to-film adaptation is a riveting drama, starring two-time Academy Award winner Emma Thompson as a British High Court judge tasked with making a decision that will speak to our most fraught questions regarding religious tolerance — and could mean life or death for an innocent young man.

Cineseries will also screen ANTHROPOCENE: THE HUMAN EPOCH (October 11) and TRANSIT (October 25) later this fall.

The series will include a total of eight film screenings in total from September to May at Galaxy Cinemas in the Cambridge Centre, with the final screening hosted at the annual Grand River Film Festival in May. The selections will include crowd-pleasing, controversial and award-winning stories; a film for every movie lover to enjoy and incite great conversations. is distributed twice weekly; Tuesday and Thursday
