There’s so much going on this September in Calgary! Take a look at any events calendar and you’ll see that just because the summer is coming to a close doesn’t mean that Cowtown is any less fun or vibrant – far from it! Here are just a few events coming up that we can’t wait to attend.
 

THE CALGARY INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

This year’s Calgary International Film Festival marks its 19th year, and takes place from September 19 to 30th! That’s twelve days of the most intriguing cinema in the world! Featuring over 200 short and feature films, if you consider yourself a film-buff you have to check this out – especially with affordable festival passes and ticket bundles for the truly committed audience member!

Here are some of the films we’re excited to see: Bad Reputation, a biopic about the iconic frontwoman of seminal punk band The Runaways Joan Jett, and her transformation into a rock goddess. Mega Time Squad, a New Zealand caper comedy about small-time crooks who make it big with a time travel machine! And Making Coco, a documentary celebrating the life and career of NHL goalie (and good ol’ Alberta boy) Grant Fuhr! Making Coco will make its worldwide premiere at the closing gala on September 28 – don’t miss out!
 

BEAKERHEAD

How do you describe Beakerhead… if we were to try, we would call it Burning Man for scientists!

That’s not entirely right, but what is true is that Beakerhead is a one-of-a-kind event for those with a love of science, engineering, and wild imagination. Taking place over September 19th to 23rd, Beakerhead is a mash-up of an arts festival with a maker fair, where excited, wonderful nerds come up with truly awe-inspiring installations and even more exciting parties!

Find out more about Beakerhead here, but trust us – if it sounds intriguing to you, you HAVE to check it out!
