Edmonton International Film Festival

The Edmonton International Film Festival presents more than 150 independent, international films over 10 days and nights. We bring in filmmakers for intimate audience Q&A's, host parties, produce a 24-hour filmmaking challenge, present a full day of cinema produced by Albertans and program the wildly attended 'Lunchbox Shorts' -- a lunchtime treat for the downtown business community. This is Edmonton's celebration of films -- and the people who make them.

EIFF is an Academy Awards® qualifying festival for Live Action & Animation Short Films.
