NARRATIVE FEATURE films are dramatic, live-action and animated stories, from Canada and around the world. We're looking for films that engage, enlighten and entertain in ALL genres -- thriller, comedy, and even the darker, tougher stuff. Films must have been completed after January 1, 2018 and be an EDMONTON Premiere at festival time. “I loved how gutsy programming like NOVITIATE worked, and that festival favourites like THE FLORIDA PROJECT packed 'em in. The highlight for me, was the spirited conversation after BLACK COP. I am really proud be part of a festival that supports emerging talent and the commitment to Canadian film you show year after year is vital.” - Christian Zyp (Canada), Festival-goer You had a film programmed at EIFF in the past 5 years (2014-2018)?

I loved it. The city, the people, the audiences... I wish I could've stayed longer. I met some great people and made some very good contacts, and obviously I credit all of that to you guys. You all should be very proud.
