The Parrsboro Film Festival announces the dates for its sixth annual celebration of Atlantic Canadian cinema Oct. 21 with an original lineup of films, filmmakers, music, and more to be announced shortly.

This year’s lineup includes The Seer, directed by Gary Blackwood (Director/Screenplay).

Carol Petty is the perfect stay-at-home mom.  She's very good at making sure her husband, Lloyd, and their eight-year-old son, Shawn, get where they're supposed to be when they're supposed to be there, that they eat right, that their home is immaculate. 

But when Shawn is kidnapped from school, her well-organized world falls apart.  After weeks without a single lead, not even a ransom note, Carol takes matters into her own hands.  She appeals for help to burned-out psychic Michael McFall.  

The idea for a film festival was hatched in 2011 by a group of local film buffs who enjoy and appreciate independent films, especially those made in Atlantic Canada or with a strong Atlantic Canadian connection.

All films are screened at The Hall (, which has a big, 16-foot retractable screen, soft theatre seating, exceptional surround sound—and popcorn! Join us as we celebrate six years of film-festival success.
