Why locals love it

This is the city’s premier film festival, attracting the biggest budget films, and even an occasional star or two. Many of the films are premiers for the city, province or country. In September, this is the place to see and be seen.

Why you should visit it

There's a real air of excitement at the venues, especially for the opening and closing galas. In addition to the main event, organizers partner with Hot Docs to screen monthly documentaries November through April. They call the program Doc Soup.

Special tip

CIFF also hosts TIFF`s “Canada’s Top 10 Film Festival” featuring the best Canadian productions of the year. It runs at the end of February.
