CIFF 2015

Film has always been a pure passion of mine. My obsession with the power it possesses is endless...

When you take the time to read to credits, you learn it takes hundreds even thousands to make a vision a reality. Highlight event this year was a a trip to John Scott's Ranch, world renowned.
You can taste the decades of excellence and passion for ranching and film. Breathe taking.
Gone are the years past, this year CIFF shared the true meaning of collaboration through a diversified schedule of film and events that included all film lovers! Even room for an unofficial Pyjama Party.
Favourite Film this year was "Diablo", filmmaker Lawrence Roeck and his team delivered, leaving the audience wanting more.

Canadians have been enjoying the story telling of  Paul Gross for some time now... I was completely taken with his latest Film "Hyena Road". This project somehow feels like it will need a mantle.
Well done to the executive, the staff, the volunteers, the film community and the people with passion for a story well told. CIFF 2015 was a complete success. Calgary is on the map for film done right, stop by some time...
