CIFF Preview: Fiona Wren

by Fiona Wren · 0 comments

To celebrate the 10th Annual Calgary International Film Fest, the team at GetDown.ca have decided to publish a series of articles showcasing the films you need to see. We’ll be posting the top four films from each of our writers throughout the week so check back each day. First up is Fiona Wren.

An Education

I have a thing for good British films, and this one, which tells the story of a young girl in 1960s England, looks like it fits the bill. Also, it has Peter Sarsgaard, and experience tells me you can rarely go wrong with Peter Sarsgaard. | More Information


Art & Copy

When does an ad slogan become a catchphrase? How does it happen? There’s an app for that. (No, not really, but this documentary tries to answer the question, with some input from big names in the ad biz.) | More Information

Seven Minutes in Heaven

One of the best things about CIFF is checking out films from other countries. This debut from Israeli filmmaker Omri Givon follows a woman as she tries to put her life – and memory – back together after she and her boyfriend are caught in a suicide-bomb explosion. | More Information

The Mirror

The idea of building a giant mirror to reflect sunlight into a town in Italy sounds like the work of an evil genius. It wasn’t, it’s for real, and this film, ahem, sheds some light on how they did it. | More Information
