That's a Wrap!
WHEW! We built it. And you came. Another inspiring chapter in the book of EIFF. More films. More guests. More parties. Some FREE parking. Loads of laughter. All kinds of memories. Thank YOU to everyone -- volunteers, sponsors, MEDIA, crew, moderators, musicians, filmmakers, audiences -- for making 2013 our best Edmonton International Film Festival event EVER! The festival is over, but EIFF crew is still putting in long hours -- immersed in everything from returning films, to reconciling books, to submitting funding applications and sponsorship proposals for 2014.
Here's where we need your help. If you enjoyed your festival experience, please take a few moments to e-mail or write a letter of support (and encouragement). How does EIFF make your life richer? Is having an international film festial in Edmonton important to you? To the City? E-mail us.
