Calgary Cinematheque - Season 11

Visit for more information and tickets

2017 / 2018 SERIES:

Masters: Wong Kar Wai

Wong Kar-Wai is a genuine auteur whose signature style is instantly recognizable in his films due to the presence of eye-popping visuals, memorable music and characters that linger long in the memory.

Spotlight: Wexler & Willis

This season we're shining a spotlight on cinematographers, choosing two Americans, Gordon Willis and Haskell Wexler, and their politically charged films of the 1960s and 1970s.

Focus: Landscapes

More than a mere setting, a landscape and the representation of it undergoes differing treatments in cinema. At the intersection of topography and narrative, there are films that evoke, and exercise a landscape’s capacity as a kinetic and tactile character.
