November 23 - December 1, 2018

Satirical and raunchy, Slap Shot stars Paul Newman as the coach of a minor league hockey team that resorts to increasing violence during the game to gain popularity

Join SIFF this winter for some of the most beloved classics to hit the ice! From the family friendly The Mighty Ducks and the outrageously violent hockey goonery of Slap Shot and Goon to the star-crossed lovers in Ice Castles and Cutting Edge (with a little King Curling for good measure) - these films will make you want to lace up your skates!
