RED DEER- The Central Alberta Film Festival’s February 20-23 screening schedule has been released.

Canadian, Albertan, and local films are among the "cream of the crop," says Tanya Mullakady, CAFF Communications Director. "There is such a variety of films. There’s really something for everyone."

Alberta productions include Rise: Story of the Augustines (Calgary), Cor Values (Central Alberta), The Last of the Fur Traders (Edmonton), and Prairie Dog (Lethbridge).

Rise: Story of the Augustines had two sold out screenings at the 2018 Raindance Film Festival in London and won the Audience Choice Award at the 2018 Santa Cruz Film Festival.

The screening at CAFF will be the film’s Canadian premiere.

Cor Values was filmed primarily in Red Deer and the surrounding area.

According to Cor Values’ director, Gilbert Allan, one of the goals when making the film was to use as much local talent as possible for cast and crew.

"We are proud to say 100% of our crew and cast are Canadian with every single one having connections to Alberta."

A full schedule of February 20-23 screenings can be found at cafilmfestival.ca and tickets can be purchased in advance at cafilmfestival.ca/tickets/ for individual features, full festival access, as well as a special screening and awards ceremony.
