Film Circle is a community of cinephiles united by the desire to support CIFF in fostering the future of filmmaking and enriching audiences through world-class film. These altruistic champions of cinema help CIFF elevate Calgary's cultural vibrancy, cultivate new talent, promote volunteerism and encourage youth education.
As a pillar of Alberta's arts and culture scene for over 20 years, CIFF is committed to platforming remarkable emerging artists, dedicating at minimum 25% of feature film programming to first and second-time filmmakers. Empowering the filmmakers of tomorrow, CIFF has also brought the magic of movies to 5,000+ students across Calgary through our youth-focused film program Generation Next.
In addition to becoming patrons of the arts, Film Circle members enjoy a premium festival experience featuring exclusive events, a private lounge and access to a 48-hour advance pre-sale window.
