Calgary International Film Festival (Closing Gala the Smalls! - The Grand)

Calgary International Film Festival (Volunteer Orientation)

The Calgary International Film Festival (CIFF) is a 12-day showcase of up to 200 multi-genre films from Canada and over 40 other countries. The festival hosts gala events, screenings, award ceremonies and special presentations. We host a large number of participating filmmakers from our backyard and round the world and connect them with the audience through post-screening question and answer periods, mingling at our events, and through panels and film talks open to the general public.

Each year’s line-up is presented in series that group CIFF’s offerings into easily identifiable categories including Canadian, American and World Cinema, Documentaries, Late Shows and Shorts. We also present a number of awards to outstanding films selected by our audiences and esteemed juries.

In addition to the festival, CIFF presents Doc Soup, a six-month screening series of award-winning and critically acclaimed documentary films presented in conjunction with the Hot Docs International Documentary Film Festival.
