image1 (12)September 21-October 2

Calgary, Canada

The Calgary International Film Festival (CIFF) is the largest film festival in Alberta, and is the sixth-largest in Canada. The first edition was held in 2000 and was attended by 8,000 people. Within three years, attendance shot up to over 20,000.

Now held for 12 days, the festival aims to bring several filmmakers directly in touch with the audience in post-screening interaction to connect through films. CIFF will showcase multi-genre features and short films from Canada and 40 other countries.

The festival has always included a large number of first-time feature filmmakers. By showing their work alongside that of established contemporaries from around the world, this festival celebrates new energy and ideas.

Opening Film

Maudie

Maudie, a biopic, focuses on the relationship between one of Canada’s most inspiring figures in art, Maude Lewis (Sally Hawkins) and the man she married, Everett Lewis (Ethan Hawke). Afflicted with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, Maudie struggles very hard to win her independence and ends up marrying the man who employed her as a housekeeper. As Everett tries to protect himself from being hurt, Maudie’s deep and abiding love for him remains unaffected even as her success as an artist rises. Directed by Aisling Walsh, the film also features Kari Matchett and Gabrielle Rose.

Indian Connect

Mostly Sunny

Dilip Mehta’s directorial Mostly Sunny starring Sunny Leone is the story of Karenjit Kaur Vohra’s transformation into Sunny Leone, the world-famous porn star, and how it clashes with her true personality off-screen. It offers a look at one of the world’s most beguiling personalities, set against the backdrop of a nation under-going shifting morals and modernisation.
