The Timmins Film Society is back for the 2017-2018 season

Catherine Bainbridge’s Rumble will be showcasing on October 16



The Timmins Film Society recently announced that Catherine Bainbridge’s Rumble will be showcasing on Oct. 16, 2017 at Timmins Cinema 6 at 7 p.m. Rumble: The Indians who Rocked the World tells the story of a profound, essential, and – until now – missing chapter in the history of American music: the Indigenous influence. Featuring music icons Charley Patton, Mildred Bailey, Link Wray, Jimi Hendrix, Jesse Ed Davis, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Robbie Robertson, Randy Castillo, and others, Rumble shows how these talented musician helped shape the soundtrack of our lives. 

The Timmins Film Society has been a great showcase for the celebration of Canadian and international independent films since its reincarnation in 2014. Last season, the Timmins Film Society screened seventeen films, including three showings of the locally featured Two Lovers and a Bear.

“When we first discussed bringing in Two Lovers and a Bear, we didn’t anticipate how many people would want to come out and see it. We sold out two shows, and the last screening was almost completely full. We have been lucky to see our audience grow every season, and we try to be as responsive to customer’s viewing needs as possible,” said Jon Belanger, a volunteer with the Timmins Film Society. 

Last year, the non-profit began accepting sponsorships from businesses. Sponsorships help offset the screening costs and work towards providing art scholarships and potentially towards a future local film festival. Last year, the society was able to sponsor three local individuals who are pursuing their education within the film industry. Sponsorship package information is available by contacting the Timmins Film Society directly. 

For those who would like to follow the full schedule of the Timmins Film Society, please see their Facebook page.

Rumble will be shown at Timmins Cinema Six on Monday, Oct. 16 at 7 p.m. Guests can purchase their tickets in advance for $10 at Black Spruce Gallery on Pine Street North or at the Timmins Museum. Limited tickets will be available at the door. Tickets are available for purchase online through the Timmins Film Society Facebook page.
