WHAT IS GENERATION NEXT?

ABOUT THE SERIES

Generation Next is Calgary International Film Festival's youth-focused film series. Heading into its third year, the Series empowers youth ambassadors to hand-pick films relevant to their generation and gives a new voice to the youth perspective. CIFF collaborates with 10 high school students grades 9-12 to select and watch films, curating an important part of the festival's lineup.  

The curated films will also have high school curriculum ties, and teachers can sign-up for a field trip to watch a film during the school day during the 2020 festival. LEARN MORE
