CICFF 2021 – Season Nein!

Who needs a laugh more than now?  Answer: all of us!  This is why we are pressing on and brining you our 9th consecutive season of mirth and merriment. Given all of the restrictions in place both in our headquarters in Winnipeg and throughout the world, we have christened this season “Season Nein!”.  As the rest of the world says Nein! we are saying Yes, to comedy film at least.

Given the unique requirements this year, we are changing our typical event a bit.  We will be having an online awards show on February 27th, 2021 and a live screening event which will include our selections and award winners later in the year once we have slightly warmer weather and (hopefully) restrictions have been lifted to a point where we can gather safely for an evening of hilarious comedy film from around the world.

Not even a global pandemic will deter Canada’s longest running and most majestic film festival!
