Nickel Independent Film Festival – Saturday, June 18 at 3:30pm

June 18

Paul Pope Tribute Screening
Presented in partnership with NIFCO

The majority of the Nickels’ festival screenings will be available to watch both in person at the LSPU Hall or online on demand. Both methods will follow the same schedule. For example, the Horror Night screening will take place in person at the LSPU Hall on Thursday at 9:30pm, and that screening will also become available to watch on demand online at that time.


All in-person screenings will take place on the main stage at the LSPU Hall at 3 Victoria Street, St. John’s. Because space is limited we recommend booking your seats in advance, and you can do that by phone at 709-753-4531 or online. Tickets are pay-what-you-can. Any amount is appreciated to help us with filmmaker screening fees and other festival expenses. If you purchase tickets online for in-person shows, there are designated Pay-What-You-Can-Amounts in increments of $5. If you call in or come in person to buy tickets, you can indicate how much you wish to pay regardless of the online increments.

A selection of films to celebrate the legacy of Paul Pope — one of the key builders of the film and TV industry in Newfoundland and Labrador.

For more than 40 years, Paul Pope led with kindness and passion. As a producer, Pope worked on hundreds of films and shows, and owned Pope Productions, the company behind productions like Hudson & Rex, Grown Up Movie Star, Rare Birds, and Life with Derek. He was a passionate advocate for independent Canadian media, and served as a founding member of NIFCO (Newfoundland Independent Filmmakers Cooperative) as well as a board member of the Canadian Media Producers Association and vice-chair of the Canadian Media Fund.

Paul passed away in April of 2022 after a short illness.

All funds raised at this screening will be donated to NIFCO to help ensure that Newfoundlanders and Labradorians continue to have access to the tools and expertise needed to produce independent media art.
