...And, Cut! CIFF 2016 Wraps Up

Mondays: much-reviled second sequel to the universally loved Saturday, and the bane of many existences. We rolled out of bed this morning (having just rolled into it mere moments before, from the feel of it) and realized - Monday's come, and that means the 17th annual Calgary International Film Festival is over! Only 353 more days until the next one!
