As of April 1, 2022 CIFF will no longer require vaccination records to be checked at CIFF screenings.

Globe Cinema is continuing to require masking, meaning audience members attending Top Docs and Global Perspectives screenings will need to be masked until they're in their seats.

In following provincial guidelines, the Calgary International Film Festival will no longer require patrons to show their proof of vaccination and leave the choice of wearing a mask up to the patron. Masks are still highly encouraged due to the close proximity of other patrons in the seating area.

Seating will remain distanced, with two seats to the left and right of each party remaining empty.

We ask that you please be respectful of each other’s choices and be kind to staff and volunteers; harassment or bullying is not tolerated under any circumstances.
