Events Description

The Edmonton International Film Festival… international, independent and eye-opening. For ten days each autumn, Edmontonians feast on all things cinematic. It’s a veritable buffet of the best new indie filmmaking from around the globe. Our schedule includes 50+ feature-length slots, and 100+ short films programmed into feature-length packages. All films screened at EIFF must be Edmonton premieres.

The Edmonton International Film Festival showcases the finest filmmaking into the following programming streams which includes films submitted and solicited:

NARRATIVE FEATURE: Feature films are dramatic, live-action and animated stories over 40-minutes, from Canada and around the world. We’re looking for films that engage, enlighten and entertain in ALL genres and for all ages.

DOCUMENTARY FEATURE (40-minutes and over): Documentary filmmaking continues to grow in popularity, and our audiences love ’em. We’re looking for live-action and animated documentaries that are passionate, provocative, life-affirming… in other words, films that get audiences talking!

NARRATIVE SHORT (under 40-minutes): We are looking for stories that inspire, engage and entertain. Selected films will showcase ‘excellence in storytelling’. Short, dramatic films include animation, live-action and experimental in all genres: family, COMEDY (comedy is HUGE with our audiences), thriller, film noir, western… the list goes on. Our most popular program strand for all short films is Lunchbox Shorts – a 45-min. package of shorts scheduled over lunch hour for the downtown business crowd.

DOCUMENTARY SHORT (under 40-minutes): We are looking for all kinds of fascinating, live-action and animated documentary stories that teach us, motivate us, or take us to a place (in mind, or in body) that we might never have gone.

SNOW, MAN: Films With Frost! (all lengths): Snow. The white, fluffy stuff that falls from the sky. It builds character. And is the reason our first sentence after “How are you?” is “Cold enough for ya?”. We KNOW snow in Canada and want to see how filmmakers from other, wintery countries embrace it — or not! Show us your snow, man!
