Artifact Small Format Film Festival

FILM 0047 CSIF Header 800x400 v1.1



The Artifact Small-Format Film Festival is an annual 3-day film festival, screening exclusively Super8 and 16mm film. Formerly the $100 Film Festival, we are now in our 27th year of celebrating celluloid film! We are proud to be among the select few that continue to keep this unique medium alive and to draw celluloid lovers to Calgary each year.

Each night of the festival will be kicked off with our Film/Music Explosion series, which features a live performance by a local artist, accompanied by a Super 8 music video directed by a local filmmaker. The show will continue with a themed shorts programme of Super 8 and 16mm films from around the world. Each screening will have a 15-minute intermission and will be followed by a Q&A with filmmakers. 

This year we are pleased to welcome filmmaker and scholar Izabella Pruska-Oldenhof! She will be presenting a retrospective of her 16mm filmography throughout the festival, as well as an Artist Talk at the University of Calgary on Friday, March 8th, and a Photogram workshop on Saturday, March 9th. 

 Stay tuned for more information about Artifact 2020.
