Windsor International Film Festival releases May movie line-up

The Windsor International Film Festival (WIFF) will be returning to the Capitol Theater next month with new films for movie-goers to enjoy.

WIFF announced Tuesday it would be bringing four films back to the theater after a successful weekend of screenings in March.

“It just felt so wonderful and natural to be back in the Capitol Theater showing world-class films,” said Vincent Georgie, WIFF executive director and chief programmer.

“Being able to once again spill out into the lobby, and then out into the city’s downtown core and discuss cinema is one of my favorite WIFF experiences.”

The screenings will take place in the Capitol Theater from Thursday, May 12 to Saturday, May.

The following films will be screened:

  • Something Sunday: Starring Olivia Colman, Josh O’Connor, Colin Firth and Odessa Young, Mothering Sunday tells the story of a maid living in post-World War I England who secretly plans to meet with the man she loves before he leaves to marry another woman. Playing Thursday, May 12 at 7:45 pm, Friday, May 13 at 6 pm and Saturday, May 14 at 5:55 pm

  • Scarborough: A film adaptation of the award-winning novel by Catherine Hernandez. Over the course of a school year, three kids in a low-income neighborhood find community and friendship at a drop-in reading program. Playing Thursday, May 12 at 12:45 pm, Friday, May 13 at 3:20 pm and Saturday, May 14 at 1 pm
