Introducing The Poster Show, CIFF's first presentation of reimagined movie posters!

The Poster Show brings together a variety of ten artists from Calgary to create unique movie posters for some of our favourite films. We'll have a gallery-style presentation pre-festival and prints will be available for purchase. 

If you are part of our brand new Friends with Benefits Membership program, you get a free poster. Pretty cool right? Click here to learn more about the other benefits of this program and become a member today! 

Here's a sneak peek at some of the posters the artists have been working on - little teasers or snapshots of their drawing books.  They aren't complete yet, but it will give you an idea of what to expect at The Poster Show!

Can you guess which films these posters are for?
