Last year I was lucky enough to be a guest at many of the events surrounding CIFF (Calgary International Film Festival). It is not only a time where some of the most amazingly unique films hit Canada but also some of the most fabulous parties come with it.
The 3 of the best parties CIFF has to offer are;
The Opening Night Red Carpet Gala (September 22nd)
The Black Carpet Gala (September 3oth)
& The Closing Night Gala (October 1)
Last year one of my favorite movies was shown during the Black Carpet Gala; ‘I Spit on Your Grave’… With this years feature being ‘Monster Brawl’; A 100% different film from last year but as always a great after party will follow.
If you’re looking to get a feel for what CIFF has to offer, I would definitely suggest the Opening Night Gala.
The night kicks off with an amazing strut down the red carpet, followed by a screening of Donovan’s Echo, followed by a night of bubbly, paired with treats from Calgary’s food trucks! Ticket includes screening and after-party including a glass of champagne, two additional cocktails, and of course food!
The price on the ticket is $75. But for the lucky little dumplings who subscribe to CIFF or are taking a little read today, you can use the promo code “OPENING2011” to get your ticket for $55.
Be warned these tickets will sell out quick! Click here to purchase.
Hope to see you there at this years amazing festival!
