Rockies Film Festival Presents: Peace by Chocolate

October 20, 2022 Key City Theatre

The Rockies Film Festival and Series, organized by the Rotary Club of Cranbrook Sunrise, presents Peace by Chocolate, based on the inspirational true story!

Based on a true story, this sweet and savoury film follows the newly settled Hadhad family’s efforts to establish an artisanal chocolate shop in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. As business takes off and neighbours take notice, the eldest son struggles to reconcile his commitment to his family’s legacy with his own professional ambitions, much to the chagrin of the eccentric patriarch, Issam. Finding its emotional anchor in the tension between duty and desire, looking back and looking forward, Peace by Chocolate offers a delectable assortment of laughs and heartfelt lessons about the sacrifices we make for one another in our families as well as our communities.

Tickets are $15 at the Key City Theatre Box Office, online at or by calling 250-426-7006.

Peace by Chocolate bars will also be available for cash sale, with profits going to Cranbrook's Shelter for Ukrainians Society.
