Prince Rupert chosen as one of 6 Canadian cities to host a Coast-to-Coast film screening
Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) announces CANADIAN SATELLITE SCREENINGS of films taking place on one night only, in six cities across Canada with venue partner Cineplex.
New this year, audiences across Canada can enjoy the excitement of TIFF in their own communities with TIFF’s “Coast-to-Coast Screenings”. Film Circuit, TIFF’s film-outreach programme since 1995, will host in-cinema screenings across the country, for one evening in each location, to help ignite theatrical exhibition across Canada and celebrate audiences’ return to cinemas.
Prince Rupert’s film premier will be: Official Competition (Competencia Oficial) (mk2 Mile End) | Spain/Argentina | Directed by Mariano Cohn, Gastón Duprat | Starring Penelope Cruz, Antonio Banderas, Oscar Martinez
Official Competition follows filmmaker Lola Cuevas (Cruz) – the ultimate mad genius archetype who is on a constant quest for perfection. Cuevas has been hired by a billionaire to create his film 'legacy', which is hardly an easy task. A role of such magnitude of course requires the best; which in this case, is Antonia Banderas' character, Félix Rivero; Official Competition's heartthrob. Alongside Cuevas' trusted companion and theatre thespian, Iván Torres (portrayed by Oscar Martínez), the trio work often inharmoniously to bring the crazed filmmaker's visions to life.
