$100 Film Festival

The $100 Film Festival is an independent film festival that runs for three days every March in Calgary, Alberta. The festival showcases films in all genres by local and international independent artists who enjoy working on small format film (Super 8 film and 16mm film).

Created in 1992 by the Calgary Society of Independent Filmmakers (CSIF), the $100 Film Festival started as a challenge for area filmmakers to a make a low-budget movie using Super8 film for less than $100. In later years, the CSIF changed the rules to allow filmmakers to work with 16 mm film and an increased budget, the $100 Film Festival still works to embody the spirit of low-budget film making and has become a popular event in Calgary.
