We would like to acknowledge that the CIFF is occurring on Treaty 7 territory, in Mohkinstsis, colonially known as Calgary. The CIFF recognizes the importance of reconciliation with Indigenous communities across Canada. As we work towards meaningful acts of reconciliation, we ask that all people attending CIFF centre and celebrate Indigenous voices.

The Calgary International Film Festival strives to provide a safer space where audiences can truly enjoy the festival experience. CIFF is committed to creating and maintaining a respectful festival environment that is free from discrimination, violence, bullying, harassment, sexual assault, stalking, abuse, and threats.
