Due to COVID-19 and current restrictions, it wasn’t feasible to run the Routes to Roots Film Festival as in past years, so organizers decided to make some changes to this year’s festival by focusing on filmmakers with a connection to Norfolk County, partnering with the TIFF Film Series monthly screening at The Strand, and supporting local agencies.


October 23 & 24, 2021

Local filmmakers Chris Atkins and Mike Fletcher will discuss their Turks and Caicos diving project which aired on the History Channel. In addition, Dave Cole and Stew Craven will premiere their short film ‘PASSAGE’. The Haldimand-Norfolk Literacy Council/Norfolk Adult Learning Centre is this month’s community partner. Feature film will be ‘PIG’ starring Nicolas Cage. Showtimes at 4:45pm. Advance registration is required. Email jcarroll@kwic.com.
