The Calgary International Film Festival announced the full lineup of 210 films that will be screened at this year’s festival: 100 features and 110 shorts.
“The Calgary International Film Festival is getting better and better, and growing on so many different levels,” said Steve Schroeder, Executive Director, Calgary International Film Festival. “Last year, CIFF set an all-time box office and attendance record with 35,000 fans attending the 12-day festival. This year, we will continue to expand the excitement with a tremendous array of films, galas, filmmakers and special guests in attendance, along with our new Behind the Screen series.”
The final wave of films announced includes several of the hottest films to hit the festival circuit this year, such as the Alberta-shot BURN YOUR MAPS, Asghar Farhadi’s THE SALESMAN, Pedro Almodóvar’s JULIETA, the American indie AND PUNCHING THE CLOWN and Jim Jarmusch’s PATERSON.
The 2016 Calgary International Film Festival begins on Wednesday, September 21 and runs until October 2.
