The Calgary International Film Festival entertains and engages audiences by curating the most innovative and compelling films, and creating remarkable festival experiences. We value the way visual stories are shared and experienced and how our world perspective is reflected, enriched and broadened by these shared cinematic experiences.

The Calgary International Film Festival believes in developing strong partnerships that further our ability to play an important role in arts and culture in Calgary but also across our province and nation. Film has the ability to reach people on a number of levels and is seen as a very accessible art form. CIFF is proud to have a very engaged, loyal, movie going audience and has authentic and deep ties in our community reflected in our accessibility and strong brand loyalty. To our community stakeholders, CIFF delivers measurable impact, connectivity and relevance as a spectacular event.

Did you know that the Calgary International Film Festival is both a registered charity and not-for-profit arts and culture organization operating 365 days of the year?

The Calgary International Film Festival Society (CIFF) is not just an amazing 12-day film festival. We are also a year-round arts and culture organization devoted to supporting our local filmmakers, youth, and enriching the Calgary audience through film. CIFF believes in celebrating achievements in filmmaking and having a direct impact on the future of film. Annually, CIFF awards $9,500 in cash prizes that go directly to the filmmaker. Help us invest in new talent by making a donation to CIFF today. Each year we try to expand our impact on filmmakers by enhancing our awards and prizes, providing more opportunities for the showcase and celebration of local and emerging artists, and highlighting our Behind the Screen series!
