Edmonton International Film Festival
Edmonton, Canada / September 26-October 5, 2019 / edmontonfilmfest.com
Competition for a slot is high at Edmonton, where 128 films were selected from 4,860 submissions. Edmonton pays particular attention to projection. As the producers explain, films “receive white glove treatment and your film will be projected in the best possible light.” Canadian premieres in 2018 included Ross Whitaker’s Between Land and Sea and Jesse James Miller’s Rabbit. The festival is an attractive venue for gaining exposure since Edmonton attracts six to eight commissioning editors from Canadian broadcasters with offices in Edmonton.
