Spring, and March in particular, is a time of awakening, of regrowth and renewal. This year there are two very special reasons to look to the past to help strengthen Fernie’s future.

One question I am asked a lot when talking about one of my favourite things – movies screening in Fernie – is 'Which Film Festival is that?' You're excused for being confused; while Fernie may be an outdoor enthusiasts' paradise, one of our favourite things to do when we head indoors is to watch a movie. As a result we have several regular offerings as well as two major Film Festivals. Let me break it down for you.
