On Aug. 4, a month before any tickets were ripped or popcorn served, the Edmonton International Film Festival held a fundraiser party at the Garneau Theatre to unveil some of this year’s program and help the Metro Cinema christen its new home. “EIFF is privileged to share this historic cinema’s grace once again with our audiences,” said Kerrie Long, producer of the 25th annual festival, running Sept. 23 to Oct. 1.

Long, a documentary filmmaker, said that in her eight years as festival producer, the event “has grown from a little film festival in a little city where it snows all the time to a respected festival, attracting filmmakers from all parts of North America.”

Last year, 13,000 people attended EIFF screenings.
