The annual Powell River Film Festival is a bright shining beacon during the dull and dreary month of February and finally, this week, the show begins!
Starting tomorrow, Wednesday, February 17th, and running until February 21st, the Powell River Friends of Film Society will showcase some of the most brilliant, current films and documentaries from filmmakers all around the world.
