CIFF Italian Party and Screening


Calgary, AB ’ÄìThe Calgary International Film Festival (CIFF) is pleased to announce a series of special events and parties as part of this year's 9th annual event. As part of CIFF's ongoing commitment to provide stellar cinematic and cultural experiences, this year's festival special events schedule highlights our visiting delegates, local filmmakers, award-winners and gala films.

The CIFF Italian Party is one of the highlights of the event schedule this year. This VIP cocktail reception and takes place at Osteria de Medici (201 10th St. NW) after the screening of CIFF's highlight Italian film, Gomorrah. While the Sicilian Mafia has drawn the lion's share of media attention over the years, it is the Neapolitan mafia, known as the Camorra, who have created an insidious oligarchy of power. Director Matteo Garrone's hotly anticipated Gomorrah (a dark play on words) weaves five storylines culled from the best-selling literary exposˆ© of the same title about Neapolitan underworld. Like the Godfather films, Gomorrah examines organized crime from the inside out, except that the latter is more concerned with the assorted lowlifes and foot soldiers rather than those at the centre of power.
