Milton Film Festival is heading for the hills.  Halton Hills that is.  The ninth annual event will host in-person screenings at Georgetown’s John Elliott Theatre (JET).
The festival begins January 29 with a full week of virtual screenings.  In-person screens will be at JET from February 4-7.  The program will include the short films, as well as live Q&A.  Feature film announcements will be made later this month/ early December.
The move was necessitated by the  ongoing closure of the FirstOntario Arts Centre- Milton due to COVID-19.  The John Elliott Theatre is located at 9 Church St. Georgetown Ontario.  Passes, and individual tickets will go on-sale soon.  For more information visit their website.
