International Festival of Winter Cinema
The International Festival of Winter Cinema (IFWC) recognizes and celebrates local and international cinema with winter, alpine, and polar themes of any style or genre. We especially encourage filmmakers to submit films that feature winter and mountain life, address climate change; are made by indigenous peoples, low-income or new Canadians; or local filmmakers. Our Snow Screen – a giant structure made of pure snow upon which our films are shown has quickly become a staple in the Winter festival scene here in Edmonton. We are the world’s only completely free outdoor winter film festival. Our one-of-a-kind festivals provides a unique experience to all movie lovers who enjoy the outdoors!
