It’s one of the largest film festivals in Canada and it’s happening right here in the Limestone City.
The 19th annual Kingston Canadian Film Festival is underway, offering a jam-packed schedule for film appreciators. The four-day event features over 30 feature films and another 60 shorts. Clarke Mackey, a member of the festival board, says there’s a real appetite among a lot of the movie-going public for things that are different.
This festival, he says, seems to fit the bill.

This Mountain Life, The Hummingbird Project, Firecrackers and Anthropocene: The Human Epoch are just a few of the dozens of titles. Thom Ernst, the festival moderator and a film critic from Toronto, says the annual event works for a number of reasons — including the fact that the organizers just love what they do.
