We open our hearts and minds to different cultures and different situations.”

Aultsville Theatre General Manager Janet Martel said there was something for everyone at Filmfest.

“You don’t have to be a die hard film enthusiast to enjoy the filmfest,” said Martel. “Just come, get out of the cold, enjoy a screening.”
