The Calgary International Film Festival (CIFF) kicks off on September 21 with an 11-day lineup of screenings, red carpet premieres, musical performances and more. But come October 3, you can still get your CIFF fix, thanks to the festival’s monthly podcast. Movie Night with CIFF launched last year to celebrate the world of cinema and the people who bring it to life. Host Gaby Aguilar, CIFF’s marketing content coordinator, is joined by guest hosts from the CIFF team, including executive director, Steve Schroeder, and engagement manager, Lucia Juliao. They interview film and TV powerhouses, from Oscar-winning Canadian documentarian Ben Proudfoot and star of The Last of Us Gabriel Luna to long-time Calgary-based production manager Tom Benz, whose credits include Brokeback Mountain and Cool Runnings. Whether you’re an all-around film buff or particularly interested in Alberta’s screen scene, you’ll want to give this podcast a shot.

Listen to Movie Night with CIFF on Spotify or Apple Music; it also airs on CJSW 90.9 FM radio on the first Tuesday of each month at 11:30 a.m. and again at 8:30 p.m.
