On the program:

  • Euphoria (12 p.m., at Venue 1, Gimli Theatre)

Winnipeg director Paula Kelly's road movie/drama stars Less Than Kind's Brooke Palsson and Sarah Constible as a daughter and a mother confronting years of lies as Palsson's young woman comes to the realization that mom hasn't been entirely honest about their departure from home years earlier.

  • We Were Children (1:30 p.m. at Venue 2, Lady of the Lake Theatre)

This Winnipeg-made drama focuses on the residential school scandal as experienced by a pair of aboriginal siblings taken from their home and placed in church-run boarding schools, where they endure years of abuse.

  • 30 Ghosts (3 p.m. at Venue 3, Aspire Theatre)

This feature documentary examines the life of Kim Hadfield, a horse farmer who aspires to be a paranormal investigator in her personal mission to prove the existence of ghosts.

  • The Disappeared (4:30 p.m. at Venue 2, Lady of the Lake Theatre)

  • Becoming Redwood (7:30 p.m. at Venue 2, Lady of the Lake Theatre)

When his dad is arrested, a long-haired, golf-obsessed hippie boy is sent to live with his estranged mom and her hostile family in this Canadian comedy-drama.

  • Close Encounters of the Third Kind (10 p.m. at the Beach Screen)

Steven Spielberg's 1978 followup to Jaws is a unique blend of sci-fi epic and mystery as a regular working Joe (Richard Dreyfuss) emerges from a UFO sighting urgently compelled to find the extraterrestrials who have "invited" a sampling of earthlings to a historic meet-and-greet.
