The other is by clicking the Manage Preferences link at the bottom of a previous e-mail you were sent. (Please note, this will have to be a specific e-mail sent to you and not one forwarded to you from another person.)

How can I view and/or purchase a film I saw at the Festival?

The mission of the CIFF is exhibition and education; therefore, we are not involved with the distribution process for films screened during the CIFF. However, film contact information can be found on the CIFF website, listed on the right-hand column of the film's description page. You can use this information to contact the distribution company and/or filmmaker about purchasing or viewing their film.

Another place to track when and where past CIFF films are available to view online is our CIFF Alums page, which we will continue to update as new information becomes available.


How do I get more involved as a sponsor or partner of the Festival?

If you are interested in sponsorship opportunities and packages with the Festival, or are part of an organization or media outlet that would like to partner with the Festival, please contact Associate Director, Patrick Shepherd at
