The Calgary International Film Fest is back! Which is great news if you’re a movie fan, and even better news if you like weird, independent movies. And, really, who doesn’t? Also of note is the scandalous Film Festival Hotel Deal we’re offering on rooms for guests and attendees of the Festival.
Ahhh, this really is my favourite time of year. More and more this Festival is a making life exciting for devoted Horror movie fans. Some of the entries in this year’s Late Show are films I’ve been looking for with absolutely no succes for a long time (V/H/S, Grabbers, Chained, and Citadel for example). Thank you CIFF! Boo! Heh, heh, heh.
Starting from September 20th and going until September 30th, the Calgary International Film Festival will be showing some of the most innovative film projects from the last year. Continuing in the same series format as the previous festival, there’s the Headliner Series, the Documentary Series, and (my personal favourite) the Late Show series. I’m especially looking forward to some of the fun/ghoulish entries to this year’s Film Festival such as Dead Before Dawn, and The Amazing Adventures Of The Living Corpse.
New this year is a series aptly titled Spotlight On Japan. Featuring a handful of that break out from (and in one case reaffirm) the Anime and Manga mold that the island nation is reknowned for creating.
Tickets for Film Fest, as well as its Opening, Closing, and Black Galas can be purchased online here.
Similar to last year’s deal, we’ve got a bargain on rooms for anyone coming into town for the Festival. Starting at $109 for a standard room, and moving up to $119 and $129 for Balcony rooms and Two Bed Suites.To book your rooms and claim the discount, simply call in and mention that you’ll be around for the Festival, and present your tickets to the Front Desk at Check-In.
