Fort McMurray Tourism and Keyano Theatre & Arts Centre presents: tiff Film Circuit


Margaret Thatcher's iron-fisted rule over 1980s Britain prompted waves of political protest.  Perhaps the most amazing response of all occured when Welsch coal miners and London lesbians and gays found a common cause.  Pride tells the story of that unlikely alliance!  Pride is a comedy that highlights some in the mining village that have to get over their homophobia and some of the gay activists that just have to get over themselves!
