The Edmonton International Film Festival (September 29 to October 7, 2021) is presenting a theatrical screening of the best TV commercials from around the world. And if the lure of wall-to-wall, 30-second, propagandist films isn�t enough � a portion of every ticket sold goes to help support the 20th Edmonton International Film Festival.
Direct from the Clio Awards in Miami, Florida, the World�s Hottest Commercials is 90-minutes of the Bronze, Silver and Gold television award winners.
Kerrie Long, General Manager of EIFF, attends the Clio Awards in Miami each year as a producer with local commercial film company Frame 30 Productions. �The 2005 Clio Award winning television ads are as strong as ever. It�s always great fun to see creative work from other parts of the world and meet the people who turn 30-seconds of airtime into compelling, watch able entertainment. We are proud to be working again with the Clio Awards team and their partners in Canada, ihaveanidea, and offering Edmontonians a small taste of the art of commercial filmmaking. For the first time this year, we�re putting a little of the film festival experience into the mix with an Opening Night Gala of the World�s Hottest Commercials � also a fundraiser event for EIFF�.
Opening Night Gala is Thursday, April 13th at Garneau Theatre. Advance tickets to Opening Night are $20 and available online at http://www.edmontonfilmfest.com/ or at Princess and Garneau Theatres. Doors open at 5:30. Complimentary drinx and nibblies. Film rolls at 7.
Regular screenings run at 7 & 9 each night from April 14th to 27th with 2 p.m. matinees on weekends and statutory holidays. For ticket prices, go to http://www.magiclanterntheatres.ca/ and click on �Garneau�.
