The Portage la Prairie Film Festival — AKA Reel Event — will kick off Oct. 21 with the screening of PERCY
Due to COVID-19 health protocols, Reel Event organizers say “the season will be different this year. We are working with your safety in mind. “Masks will be mandatory to attend the screenings. Seating in the Auditorium is limited and you will be shown to your seat. We need to ensure that physical distancing practices are followed. The concession has a physically distanced line up. The bar will be located in the auditorium.
“Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the movie will start at 6:30 p.m. This time change will allow our group to avoid other moviegoers while entering and leaving.”
Advance tickets can be purchased until 3 p.m. on Oct. 21. Purchase advance tickets here.
We cannot guarantee that walk-up tickets will be available at the door. Please check our website and social media for updates after 3 p.m. that day.
If you prefer you can call us at 204-239-6029 and order your ticket over the phone.
Season passes are no longer being offered in favour of single movie tickets.
Based on events from a 1998 lawsuit, PERCY follows small-town farmer Percy Schmeiser, who challenges a major conglomerate when the company’s genetically modified (GMO) canola is discovered in the 70-year-old farmer’s crops. As he speaks out against the company’s business practices, he realizes he is representing thousands of other disenfranchised farmers around the world fighting the same battle. Suddenly, he becomes an unsuspecting folk hero in a desperate war to protect farmers’ rights and the world’s food supply against what they see as corporate greed.
