Opening Gala:
MAUDIE
(Wednesday Sept. 21 :: Jack Singer Concert Hall)Our Opening Gala film is the romance biopic MAUDIE, celebrating the life and career of Nova Scotian folk artist Maud Lewis. Shining a light on marquee films, galas celebrate the year’s highest accomplishments with a screening and a party.

MAUDIE charts the unlikely romance between Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis (Sally Hawkins, BLUE JASMINE) and the reclusive Everett Lewis (Ethan Hawke, TRAINING DAY). Maudie rose to fame in the 1960s, becoming an internationally celebrated artist while living with crippling juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.

Director Aisling Walsh, cast member Kari Matchett and producer Mary Young Leckie in attendance!

GET TICKETS

Finalists Announced:
BEST OF SHORTS
(Saturday Sept. 24 :: Globe Cinema)The jury has deliberated! Here are the finalists for this year’s Best of Shorts:

MAMAN(S), THE CULPRIT, THE SHINING STAR OF LOSERS EVERYWHERE.PICKLE, THE HEAD VANISHES, BALCONY, BON VOYAGE, CURVE and BROKEN.

Join us Sept. 24 and find out which films will take home this year’s awards for Best Short Documentary and Best Overall Short Film. For the first year, the winner of the Best Overall Short film will also qualify for Academy Award consideration, as CIFF is now an Oscar-accredited festival!
