Edmonton, Canada is North America's Northernmost City with a Metropolitan Population of almost 1.5 Million People. Edmonton is Canada's 6th Largest City, and is known as "Canada's Festival City."

This past October, we Screened Feature Length & Short Films from all over the World, and had Moviemakers from all over North America Attend the Film Festival. We had great audiences, and Sold Out our first night with the incredible Feature Film, THE CHILD REMAINS, from Director Michael Melski. (Opening Night Gala) Our After Party, (along with free food) was fantastic.

This coming year it is a Three Day Film Festival, at the Historic Princess Theatre.

We plan on continuing to expand and grow, as we strive to make the Edmonton FESTIVAL OF FEAR International Film Festival the greatest Film Festival on earth...
