About the Series

CIFF 05.17 logos 16

With a new season, comes a new name...and all the docs you love so much! With 12 great years behind us, we'd like to thank our friends at Hot Docs Festival for their partnership and inclusion in this Canada-wide program. We're headed out on our own now...with Top Docs!  

CIFF’s Top Docs (formerly known as Doc Soup) is a monthly feature-length documentary series in Calgary. 

Screening on the first Wednesday of each month, Top Docs brings six of the year's most talked-about docs to local audiences. Rich with diverse perspectives and a spectrum of filmmaking styles, these documentaries will fascinate, inspire, enlighten, and entertain! The series, heading into its 13th year, will run from November 2020 to April 2021.

Take in all six films in the series with a Top Docs Pass (stay tuned for the on-sale date) or get single tickets available one month before each screening.
