Artifact is the longest-running film festival in Calgary, and one of only a few worldwide that showcases independent films made & exhibited exclusively on Super 8 and 16mm. This year's festival features:

50+ SUPER 8 and 16MM SHORTS
Over 50 short films from Calgary and around the world

Featuring live musical performances by local favourites with song-specific work by local filmmakers:

Toronto-based experimental filmmaker + scholar Izabella Pruska-Oldenhof joins us for a retrospective, an artist talk at University of Calgary, and a Photogram workshop at CSIF.  


Formerly the $100 Film Festival, Calgary’s longest-running film festival, was started back in 1992 by the Calgary Society of Independent Filmmakers (CSIF). The name “$100” emerged due to the challenge presented by the festival to shoot a short film on four rolls of Super 8 – which amounted to the cost of $100. In following years, the festival dropped the budgetary limit and allowed 16mm film, which shifted the focus from low-budget to quality small-format films. Now, a quarter century later, CSIF is extremely proud to have a festival that is among a select few worldwide to exhibit exclusively on small-format celluloid.
