Founded in 2003, Northumberland Film Sundays (NFS) shows films available from "The Circuit", a division of the Toronto International Film Festival. These have all been shown at some point at the Toronto International Film Festival and cover a wide range of subjects. We generally choose recent movies - that is, films shown in the last two Toronto festivals.
We screen movies in the local Northumberland Mall theatre - we rent the venue and ticket sales are not part of the cinema's activity. Although the founder of NFS is Ken Prue who was at one point the owner of the Cinema, we operate at arm's length. The Chair of NFS is Patrick Houlihan - see below.
We show movies at 3:30 pm on a Sunday because it is a time that does not conflict with regular Mall theatre showtimes and suits our patrons.
We also produce a Film Festival on a weekend in January.
We are a not-for-profit group and if there is a surplus, we periodically make contributions to Northumberland County charities. Details of past donations here.
Feel free to ask any questions or tell us what you think. All e-mails will get a response.
