Feel the rhythm! Feel the rhyme! Get on up, it’s bobsled time!
The Reel Fun Film Festival is pleased to be the North American host for the 20th Anniversary celebration of Disney's family favorite Cool Runnings on Saturday, February 2nd, 2013.

Cool Runnings is the 1993 family film, starring the late John Candy, loosely based on the true story of the Jamaica national bobsled team's debut in the bobsleigh competition of the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary.

This is the first fundraising event for the Reel Fun Film Festival, an annual Calgary event, providing family-friendly films from around the world. Members of the original cast and bobsled team will be at Canada's Sports Hall of Fame for an evening filled with fine food, drink and of course a special screening to commemorate the film's anniversary.

Tickets are $100 each and include gst (purchase your tickets online and save 15%), a tax receipt and all of the evening's festivities. Seating is restricted at this once-in-a-lifetime event and only a very limited number are available. Avoid disappointment and get your tickets today!

Irving Blitzer disgraced himself when putting extra weights into his team's bob in the Olympics, resulting in his gold medal being taken away from him. Years later, Derice Bannock, son to a former friend of Irv, fails to qualify for the 100-yard sprint for the Olympics due to a stupid accident. But when he hears of Irving Blitzer living also on Jamaica, Derice decides to go to the Games anyway, if not as a sprinter, then as a bobsledder. After some starting problems, the first Jamaican bobsledding team is formed and heads for Calgary. In the freezing weather Derice, Sanka, Junior and Yul are only laughed at, since nobody can take a Jamaican bobsledding team led by a disgraced trainer seriously. But team spirit and a healthy self confidence may lead to a few surprises in the upcoming Winter Games.
