Encore! Encore!

Posted on September 30, 2016

The ballots are in! The Calgary International Film Festival is pleased to announce audience-selected encore presentations of five films. Based on ballots and box office demand, these films will screen on Sunday, October 2, the final day of the festival. 

“It’s always exciting to see which films start to develop buzz, audience anticipation, big turnout and high ratings,” said Brenda Lieberman, Programming Manager, Calgary International Film Festival. “We love programming these encores –  it’s a way for the audience to directly connect with our programmers, and let us know what they want to see most.”
