The Calgary International Film Festival entertains and engages audiences by curating the most innovative and compelling films, and creating remarkable festival experiences. We value the way visual stories are shared and experienced and how our world perspective is reflected, enriched and broadened by these shared cinematic experiences.

The Calgary International Film Festival believes in developing strong partnerships that further our ability to play an important role in arts and culture in Calgary but also across our province and nation. Film has the ability to reach people on a number of levels and is seen as a very accessible art form. We are proud to have a very engaged, loyal, movie going audience and has authentic and deep ties in our community reflected in our accessibility and strong brand loyalty. To our community stakeholders, The Calgary International Film Festival delivers measurable impact, connectivity and relevance as a spectacular event.
