This week in the city, we are rolling out the red carpet for the AGH Film Festival!
The Art Gallery of Hamilton is celebrating the art of cinematography by hosting this annual event, which is meant to showcase the world’s best festival films. This year’s films include a diverse range of outstanding films, many of which were official selections at some of the top international film festivals, such as TIFF, Cannes, and Sundance, to name a few. The festival runs from September 26th to October 5th, and is featured at downtown and other Hamilton theatres. There are thirty films on the roster this year, and the official opening night party will be taking place tonight at the AGH. You can preview film trailers, and pre-purchase tickets online; check out the Films + Trailers webpage for more information.
