Welcome to tonight’s screening of Sink or Swim and thank you for your ongoing support of the Beach Flicks film series! Running this film series alongside the TIFF Film Circuit team has been a rewarding venture for myself and the volunteer committee members: Arlene Goldney, Miranda Andersen, Louise Jones, Joyce Bartram, Jody Shworan, Tevis Spencer, Pattie Brown & Luba Plotnikoff. However, after 10 years of championing independent cinema here in Qualicum Beach, we plan to retire from the committee at the end of this season. 

We would like to make a formal call out for a new volunteer committee. If there are any audience members who are passionate about independent film, community organizing, finance, marketing or events, who would be interested in picking up the baton please connect with me after the film. I will take your contact information and pass it along to the team at TIFF Film Circuit who will answer any questions you may have. 

For those of you who are not familiar with TIFF Film Circuit, they are the outreach program of the Toronto International Film Festival and are dedicated to bringing the best of independent cinema to film series and festivals across Canada. Film Circuit curates a Release Schedule from which you would select the films to show each season and they provide step by step guidance on forming and running a film series.

They would be thrilled to help you continue to bring the best of Canadian and international cinema to Qualicum Beach. We place the future of Beach Flicks in your hands. Thank you!

* due to the nature of fringe movies (international film festival choices), Beachflicks  would like to remind you that there may be adult content shown, subtitles, foreign accents, and profanity.

We do not rate our movies and often do not preview them so that we may also enjoy them as  first time viewers. Please feel free to google them so you know what you are about to see!  Our selections are made  based on trailers and reviews given to us by the TIFF.  We sincerely hope you understand that we are volunteers in all manner of this operation.
