The films shown in Calgary are a selection of the films shown in Banff. However the Calgary selection of films in our Blue and Red programs are not necessarily the same as the A & B program that was shown in Banff in November. The Banff Festival will feature 40-50 films, while in Calgary we will only show 12-16 films from the Banff selection.
Due to the number of films being shown, we have designated the different programs as Blue and Red. Each program will show a unique set of films. The Blue and Red programs will be shown on alternate days.
All evening shows start at 7:30 pm and matinee performances start at 1:00 pm. However, please note that the Sunday evening show starts at 7:00 pm.
Generally the length of the program is about 3 hours, which includes a 20 minute break.
At each screening, you can typically expect to see around 5-8 films which feature inspirational tales from around the globe, high adrenaline films and everything in between.
Please contact us to ensure we can make the Front of House staff aware of your request.
The content of the films is determined by the filmmakers, and may include course language, drug use and frightening events. Generally, we recommend that the films are suitable for children 12 years and older. However, we encourage you to check out the film’s classification.
