Film At Sled Island

Sled Island film is back for its eigth year and we’ve built our program around all of your favourite things: record shops, synthesizers, punk singers and teenagers! We’ve included some of the best animated and comedic shorts we’ve seen in ages (keep an eye out for Ben and The Break), documentaries, premieres and more! If you’re partied out by Sunday, join us at The Globe Cinema for an afternoon of music videos and a fantastic/surreal/eccentric film treat from the 1950s. For trailers and more details, browse below.

Events are all ages unless otherwise noted. Admission is included with Sled Island Discovery and Discovery Plus. Individual tickets will be available at the door. Screenings are early, between 6:30 - 7 pm, giving you lots of time to get to Sled’s must-see concerts.
