ABOUT THE EDMONTON INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

The Edmonton International Film Festival Society’s (EIFFS) mission is to present a film festival in theatres to celebrate diverse cinema for audiences. To achieve this, we showcase high quality cinema from around the world to allow filmmakers to interact in a forum that creates and fosters community, while placing EIFF on the global film festival map.

We present films produced within 20 months of each festival.  These films are curated from submissions and solicited from distributors.  The festival also presents a generous dose of filmmaker chats, Q&A’s, gala screenings, a local filmmaker spotlight, ‘buzzy’ films that are travelling the festival circuit, shorts with lunch, and more. Films are selected on the basis of story, quality and originality. All films must be EDMONTON premieres.

EIFF IS AN OSCAR QUALIFYING FESTIVAL FOR SHORT FILMS — LIVE ACTION & ANIMATION — AND IS THE FINAL QUALIFYING FESTIVAL EACH CALENDAR YEAR.
