Victoria Film Festival brings Free-B’s back to Beacon Hill 

It’s time to grab your blanket and some snacks and head down to the Cameron Bandshell

With the onset of summer comes a yearly tradition at Victoria’s Beacon Hill Park.

It’s time to grab your blanket, a flashlight and some snacks and head down to the Cameron Bandshell in Beacon Hill Park for the Victoria Film Festival’s Free-B Film Festival.

Once again they’ve lined up a stellar collection of family-friendly films, so get ready to curl up under the stars and enjoy free films on a 20-foot-wide inflatable screen.

Pull up a patch of grass at the bandshell every Saturday in August where the whole family will enjoy treasures from movie-making history.

The festival kicks off on Saturday, Aug. 4 with a screening of the original ‘90s movie, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. On Aug. 11 see Harry in Your Pocket, on Aug. 18 see Beetlejuice and on Aug. 25 see War Games.
