 Schools/Groups

Interested in exposing your students to cinema produced outside of the Hollywood system?  EIFF U is a series of films – feature-length dramas, documentaries and shorts – presented Monday thru Friday as part of the 2014 Edmonton International Film Festival.  This year marks our 7th 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.

MORE INFORMATION about EIFF U Programming, costs, etc.  Or E-MAIL with questions.  Teacher and Student TESTIMONIALS.
