EIFF 2014 / PARTICIPATE

 

Teachers!  Bring your students to EIFF...

September 29 to October 3, 2014EIFF U is a series of films – feature-length dramas, documentaries and shorts – presented Monday thru Friday as part of the Edmonton International Film Festival. This year marks our 8th presentation of EIFF U... a thought-provoking, relevant series of films specifically aimed at junior and senior high school students. You might also be a group of retirees, or a book club, or ladies who lunch... these films, programmed during the day, might be just the interesting outing you're looking to share with each other.

Film is powerful. It offers up new perspectives on the world. Opens windows to cultures, lives, ideas we may know little about. Understanding makes us better citizens.

Cost per student is $15.  Teachers and chaperones are FREE!  Lunch is included.  All films screen downtown at the NEW! Landmark Cinemas in Edmonton City Centre.  REGISTRATION is open until September 22.  Film titles will be confirmed early September.  Questions?  E-mail EIFF U.
