The Empress Theatre is pleased to present the seventh annual Canadian Forces Memorial Film Festival Nov. 11 and 12 in Fort Macleod, AB. Veterans, history lovers, military personnel and film aficionados will not want to miss this year’s screenings of four military-related films as well as an on-stage interview with a WWII veteran.
Dr. Stéphane Guevremont, a military history instructor from Calgary who holds a PhD in Canadian Military Aviation, is the festival’s Master of Ceremonies again this year. Before the screening of each of the festival’s films, Guevremont will provide insight and context on topics from the Battle of Verdun to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour.
