For 20 years the Calgary International Film Festival has been committed to bringing you the most groundbreaking and compelling films from around the world! We put our heart and soul into making CIFF the best experience for YOU, our audience!

Your donations to 20/20 FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN campaign directly contribute to the enrichment of arts & culture in our city and help promote diversity and inclusivity across communities. Furthermore, your donation directly supports local filmmakers and emerging artists in launching their careers while also giving students from different neighbourhoods the chance to experience the joy of film through our Generation Next program.


" My favourite thing about the [Generation Next] program was that I saw films that I would never see in my life which gave me a new perspective about film, and I also learned some new ways of interpreting film, so when I make film now I have to think about everything when it's being created"
Aric Roy, GenNext program participant
"Just due to the creativity required into making the films we see today I was able to have in-depth learning into everything involved in the film. I was able to share similar interests with many people and today I have a stronger passion towards this industry"
Javor Meek, GenNext program participant
" My favourite thing was that my eyes were opened to a whole other world of film with international movies that told different stories and exposed cultures, I learned a lot through these films and they widened my perspective and world view"
GenNex t program participant, grade 11 student
" It was the first thing I got to do that genuinely made me feel excited to work in film, I've never done any program outside of school that I truly was happy to be taking part in and this made me realize how passionate I am about the industry. So I guess I'd say my favourite part was just getting the opportunity to watch unique films and through that be a part of something I took interest in."
GenNext program participant, grade 10 student
