Hello World at CIFF

Olaf BlomerusComment

It's almost here! Sunday (Sept 27th) marks the festival premiere of Hello World at the Calgary International Film Festival's Alberta Spirit Gala! Completely honoured to have Hello World showcased. Here's a description of the program:

Alberta short film shines with sophisticated choices, solid stories and remarkable technique. Celebrating a quickly rising tide of talent, the highly competitive 2015 Alberta Spirit selection encompasses the best of breed. Solid documentary filmmaking, seamless science fiction (HELLO WORLD), a period thriller (THE HITCH-HIKER), and animation (HAIKU 4: STILL) buoy this year’s seminal package. Chronicling truly Albertan artists and slices of life, join us in celebrating our homegrown talent with this selection of wildly unique films tethered by the place we call home.

If you'd like to come see Hello World on the big screen and see other Alberta talent then grab tickets here while you still can. 

In addition to being included in the Alberta Spirit Gala, Hello World is also being showcased in CIFF's Best of Shorts on Oct 3rd!

A celebration of the best short films of the 2015 festival! Our jury’s shortlist will be shown ahead of a live announcement of our newest award, the Best Overall Short Film Award. To compile the Best of Shorts, the jury considers shorts from across all genres.

Tremendously excited to be included with talent from all over the world. Tickets for that can be found here.

It goes without saying how much I appreciate all the work done by so many in making Hello World a reality. Can't wait to see it played in front of an audience on the big screen.

See you there.
