Cineplex has announced that its popular Great Digital Film Festival has been rebranded to the Flashback Film Fest and runs from February 3-9.

Each winter, the Canadian theatre chain brings a line-up of sci-fi, fantasy and fan favourites back to the big screen. “We wanted to give the festival a new name that better reflects how it has evolved and why it has been so popular over the ears,” said Brad LaDouceur, VP of Event Cinema at Cineplex.

Film critic Richard Crouse adds that “The great thing about this festival is that audiences will have a chance to relive these movies in the way they were meant to be seen: on a big screen, with an audience.”
