The Calgary European Film Festival invites movie lovers to the best of European cinema!

Each November, European movies are presented in Calgary for you to enjoy good entertainment and multiculturalism within the magic of cinema. With more European countries joining every year, the CEFF has been made possible through the efforts of a group of enthusiastic people in 2012, when the first edition took place.

Most of the productions have been nominated for international awards. The movies are screened in their respective languages with English subtitles.

In November 2024, CEFF will host the 13th Annual Festival.

Follow us on social media for updates and information on European movies!

It all started in 2012, when a small group of enthusiastic people tried to bring in movies from their European home countries. The idea charmed other communities around Calgary, and the first edition of the Calgary European Film Festival / CEFF happened, in which countries like The Czech Republic, France and Romania were represented.

Behind the scenes, the volunteering team of the European Cultural Society of Calgary has been working hard, year after year, to offer great movies (with English subtitles) to the Calgary-based European cinema lovers.

Currently, 26 communities of European descent call CEFF their cinema home
