The 20th Anniversary Calgary International Film Festival takes place September 18-29, 2019 in the heart of Calgary. Spread throughout Eau Claire, 8 Avenue S.W., and the East Village, the festival showcases 200 of the year’s most ground-breaking and must-see films from around the world - each handpicked by our expert programming team for Calgarians to enjoy. With additional fun, engaging activities held across the twelve days, the Calgary International Film Festival goes beyond just watching a film, giving moviegoers and filmmakers a unique chance to connect with one another over their love of film and enjoy remarkable experiences together.


On Saturday, September 14 in partnership with Calgary International Film Festival and Walk The YYC, the Calgary International Film Festival will host their first scavenger hunt. The hunt will showcase the city’s extensive history in film and television as a lead up to its 20th anniversary Festival. Twenty clues to celebrate 20 years of CIFF, will be released the morning of the Scavenger Hunt that will lead Calgarians to 20 film and television destination spots within the city. The contestant who visits the most places will win the grand prize of one Festival Pass to the upcoming Festival September 18-29. T&Cs apply.

Over the past 20 years, Calgary has become a hot-bed for the screen industry with its towering cityscapes, expansive prairie skies and small town backdrops for local and international productions. Oscar winning films and Award winning TV shows have all been shot in and around Calgary and now Calgarians get to visit some of these spots by guessing the clues! Some of these films will also be showcased at this year’s new Retrospective Series ‘Made in Alberta’.

Those interested in the hunt can participate in two ways, self-guided or with Walk the YYC. The 20 clues will be available starting at 9:30 a.m. on September 14 and participants are welcomed to start as soon as the clues are posted. Alternatively, Walk The YYC will be hosting a free walking tour at 10a.m. and will take participants to 12 of the 20 clues. Once participants find the clues, they are instructed to post a photo on social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) and tag @calgaryfilm, @calgarymovies and @yycwalk and use hashtag #shotinyyc in order to be entered. Everyone who participates via the tour or online will be entered in a draw for general admission tickets to the 20th Anniversary Calgary International Film Festival.

Clues for the hunt will be revealed RIGHT HERE and on our Facebook Event Page at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, September 14.

To register for the walking tour with Walk YYC visit website.

Participants must be 18 years old and above.
