With a new season comes a new name...and all the docs you love so much!
With 12 great years behind us, we'd like to thank our friends at Hot Docs Festival for their partnership and inclusion in this Canada-wide program. We're headed out on our own now...with Top Docs!
CIFF’s Top Docs (formerly known as Doc Soup) is a monthly feature-length documentary series.
Top Docs brings six of the year's most talked-about docs to local audiences. Rich with diverse perspectives and a spectrum of filmmaking styles, these documentaries will fascinate, inspire, enlighten, and entertain!
This year's Top Docs Series is going hybrid. Join us in cinema* or online with virtual streaming!
All in cinema events will take place at Globe Cinema and streaming will be offered through our Eventive platform.
*CIFF is and will continue to monitor Alberta Health Services (AHS) standards as they are updated and adjusted, and will continue to abide by the industry standards they set out for us. In the event that Provincial or Municipal restrictions do not allow for our in-cinema screenings to take place, they will not be rescheduled.
NEW: Closed Captioning will be offered for all English-language films
