Bright Nights: The 7th Baltic-Nordic Film Festival
Arts Court Theatre, Thursday, February 2, 2017, 6:30 pm
On February 2nd, join the Canadian Film Institute as we kick off the 7th annual edition of Bright Nights: The Baltic Nordic Film Festival!

The Bright Nights Launch Party is one-of-a-kind experience, presented in support of the festival in partnership with the Embassies of Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Finland, Lithuania, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. Enjoy the live entertainment, a screening of a rare film, complimentary food and drink samples courtesy of the host countries, and more! You don’t want to miss it.

The main entertainment for the evening will be a collaborative cinematic performance breathing sound into the Norwegian silent film Under forvandlingens lov / Under the Law of Change (dir. Halfdan Nobel Roede, 1911, 27 min) – the oldest Norwegian film to survive in its entirety! The film will be accompanied by live music, created specifically for this presentation by local musicians Chime of Wrens & Depth of Field .

"Camillo and Fancisca discover that their spouses, Julia and Arthus, are having an affair. They sedate the two and lock them into cages, until they get sick of each other.”

Come out, bring your pals and enjoy a chilled-out-night-out while supporting the arts, local talent, and a great collection of films from the Baltic-Nordic region.

This event will take place in the Arts Court Studio at 2 Daly Ave., on the second floor. Doors open at 6:30PM and the presentation will begin at 7:00PM.

Admission: $7.00 (HST incl.) in advance, $10 at the door.
