Due to the Covid-19 virus pandemic, the Marie Dressler Foundation has decided that the 2020 Vintage Film Festival must be cancelled. It is thought that it is unlikely that theatres will be allowed to open by September 2020 and similarly the opening gala would not be possible nor the associated fund-raising activities. Because the Festival is a major fundraiser for the Foundation, there will be no bursaries awarded in 2020.
The program will be deferred to Sept 24 to 26, 2021 when it is hoped that a normal Festival can take place.

The health and safety of our patrons and volunteers is of paramount importance to Marie Dressler Foundation.
In light of the current COVID-19 situation, we have considered the risks inherent for the community in moving ahead with RearView DocFest as planned.
Regrettably, we see no choice but to announce the cancellation of RearView DocFest.
Not only is this a disappointment for you, our patrons, but particularly disappointing for the many dedicated volunteers who have worked tirelessly over the past few months to prepare an engaging event.
Anyone who has already purchased tickets will be contacted within the next few days.
We will be monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely going forward, and assessing the possibility of rescheduling the event for later this year.
Please continue to check this website for news in the coming months.
