September is the month when after many fashion shows happening around the world as well as Canadian TIFF - there is also time for CIFF - Calgary International Film Festival.
It is a 12-day showcase of 200+ multi-genre feature and short films from Canada and over 40 other countries. The festival hosts gala events, screenings, special presentations, and a “Behind the Screen” series that emphasizes unique and exciting ways for filmmakers and fans to interact.
This year CIFF Opening Gala started with screening of "Maudie", with many guests in attendance, such as Director Aisling Walsh, Actress Kari Matchett and Producer Mary Young Leckie, as well as other special guests, including Robert Cuffley (CHOKESLAM), Shawn Potter (HEARTLAND), and Mark Tewksbury (Olympic Gold Medalist).
