THE GRAND SEDUCTION

The comedy film “THE GRAND SEDUCTION” has been selected to open 2013 Calgary International Film Festival (CIFF) on Thursday, September 19, 2013. “The Grand Seduction is a laugh-out-loud comedy, and we’re overjoyed to present the Western Canadian premier of this major release. The film is a who’s who of talent from across Canada, from director Don McKellar and the incredible cast, to co-writer Michael Dowse, who is well known in Calgary and abroad for Fubar and others. Last year’s Opening Gala was the largest and most talked about in the festival’s history, and we look forward to an even bigger night this year.” – Steve Schroeder, Executive Director, The Calgary International Film Festival
