There may be some surprising and exciting career opportunities in Alberta that you haven’t thought of. Join IATSE 212’s Young Workers Committee and an ACTRA member as they share how to break into the industry, what it is like on set and discuss the skills you need to make your mark.


This year we are excited to bring you further into what happens behind the scenes in order to bring our favourite pictures to the screen. There are many technical and craft skills needed, along with the vision to put a film together, and we want to explore that with you. We have a wide variety of events, so drop in and celebrate filmmaking with our visiting filmmakers, or find out how talented local Alberta filmmakers are. We encourage you to share your experiences with us on social media using the hashtag #calgaryfilm. 

We love Q&A’s so much at the festival that we’ve expanded the conversation so we can casually go further in-depth with filmmakers about their films. Join us for a coffee or beverage as a local filmmaker and visiting filmmaker have a conversation about their projects. The In Conversation With Series will take place at Cafe Blanca, with a FREE beverage for the first 10 people to arrive!
