We will continue to take the lead from our public health experts and, where possible, host in-person events but our virtual Festival, GRFF@Home, will include an expanded selection of films available for online streaming. We also hope to offer interactive activities such as live events and Q&As for streaming virtually, to allow our patrons to enjoy a variety of festival content from the comfort of their own home!

Our strategy in the coming months is to stay positive and keep an open mind, and we are excited for the future of the festival and its expansion within Waterloo Region. We will continue to work with and support our colleagues in the film festival community as they plan and deliver their events over the next few months. No matter what format we take, the spirit of GRFF will remain intact — a festival that encourages community involvement through a shared love for cinema by offering unique and diverse programming with creative community partnerships.

Please check back often for updates to ticket sales and packages as they become available.
