Virtual Screening – NorthwestFest

NorthwestFest International Documentary Festival may not be happening at Metro Cinema this year, BUT the show must go on, so they’ve put together an outstanding lineup of some of the year’s best docs – all available online!

With a whopping forty feature films plus an additional forty short films, available for viewing to anyone in Alberta from MAY 6th to the 16th, this is your chance to stream some of the hottest new docs from Canada and abroad, MANY of which are Canadian, International, and even World, premieres.


NorthwestFest is the ONLY festival in Alberta where you’ll see:

FANNY: THE RIGHT TO ROCK, the raucous story of the first all-female rock band to be signed to a major label…all the way back in the 1960’s! Counting no less than David Bowie among their biggest fans, this film asks the question: why have I never heard of this band??

FOREVERMOORE: THE ANGELO PROJECT, a film that’s as warm, funny, and eccentric as its subject: Angelo Moore of seminal ska band, FISHBONE.

WHITE NOISE, the definitive, explosive chronicle of the rise of the alt-right, as told by its most high-profile figures. and…

NOT GOING QUIETLY, the emotional story of rising young political star Ady Barkan’s devastating ALS diagnosis, and his fight for US healthcare reform.

END OF THE LINE: THE WOMEN OF STANDING ROCK: the incredible story of a small group of indigenous women who risked their lives to stop the $3.8 billion Dakota Access oil pipeline construction that desecrated their ancient burial and prayer sites and threatens their land, water, and very existence. 

WE ARE CONJOLA, the harrowing tale of a town nearly wiped completely off the map by the devastating Australian bushfires of 2019, only to be brought back to life by a determined group of artists.

RED HEAVEN, a very timely story of an exercise in ISOLATION, in which six volunteers take part in the ultimate dress rehearsal, living inside a year-long NASA simulation to understand the effects of isolation on the human mind. 



So this May, Stay Home…Watch Movies! All-Access Streaming Passes, Ticket Packs, and Single Tickets are available now at NorthwestFest.ca, and they’ll be back at Metro Cinema with a theatrical edition of Rainbow Visions this November!
