The 2012 AGH BMO World Film Festival showcased the world’s best festival films.
Film screenings blanketed the Greater Hamilton area, with venues in Downtown Hamilton (Empire Jackson Square 6 Cinemas and the Art Gallery of Hamilton), West Hamilton (Westdale Theatre), and Ancaster (Ancaster SilverCity). Accessible free screenings will complement our ticketed highlight films. The screenings will feature some of the world’s best-regarded recent international, independent and Canadian films.
2013 AGH i♥filmseries ticket price change
Since the last AGH i♥filmseries ticket price increase nine years ago, film distribution, theatre rental, and screening costs have continued to increase. As a result, we have had to implement a new i♥filmseries ticket price structure starting in January, 2013:
AGH Members: $ 8 | i♥filmseries pass: 10 screenings for $ 72
General Admission: $ 10 | i♥filmseries passes: 10 screenings for $90
The AGH i♥filmseries pass will still give you 10 tickets for the price of 9 films. All existing i♥filmseries passes will be honoured. You can purchase a pass before January 31, 2013 at the current price. Makes a great Christmas gift for the film lovers on your list!
Special offer: i♥filmseries attendees can receive $10 off the cost of an AGH Membership when they present their ticket. For more information, contact AGH Member Services by email or by phone at 905.527.6610 ext. 241.
2013 AGH i♥filmseries venue change
The i♥filmseries is proud to bring to you the best new festival film releases. The film industry has been undergoing a widespread transition to digital cinema projection; currently both of Canada’s major cinema chains have fully converted to digital.
Increasingly, distributors are foregoing making 35mm prints of their films. As a result, the vast majority of films that the AGH is able to access through its partner, TIFF Film Circuit, are not accessible in 35mm format. Unfortunately, we are unable to continue to hold screenings at Westdale Theatre, which offers a unique theatre experience but is currently not equipped to handle new digital formats. We will continue to seek other screening venues to offer you a great screening experience.
