The FREE-B Festival Strikes Back
With no potential for an event permit from the City of Victoria, the Free-B Film Festival has changed location, dates AND will now be opening up to only 50 people each night at The Fort Common. For the first time in 22 seasons, folks will have to register online! The event is still FREE but the VFF needs to know that you’re coming because… well… you know… there’s this virus that we are all social distancing from and we asked ourselves ‘Why line up if there’s no room?’. Registration opens for the first three films at 10 AM on August 3 and same time on August 10 for the final three films.
The fabulous Free-B film line-up has gone back to its roots and we’ve hauled out some of the most fun B movies ever! Check it out at freebfilmfest.com.
