UNDER THE STARS

a 10-week outdoor screening series

co-presented with Artscape

 

Under the Stars is Regent Park Film Festival’s FREE outdoor summer screening series. We screen films every Wednesday from June 18th – Aug 20th at 9pm, creating new opportunities to encounter the neighborhood of Regent Park by bringing together great films and audiences from Regent Park and beyond.

Under the Stars is part of the Summer Series at Daniels Spectrummade possible thanks to the generous support of two anonymous donors and Artscape.

*Rain Plan* – If it rains, we will move the event inside Daniels Spectrum in the beautiful Ada Slaight Hall. See you there!

Screenings will take place outside Daniels Spectrum at 585 Dundas Street East.

Popcorn and pop will be sold. All proceeds will go towards keeping the Regent Park Film Festival free and widely accessible.

We encourage audiences to bring their own blankets and warm clothing, as the screening will take place outside.

We’d love you to see you there!
