The Artifact Small Format Film Festival 2023

Submissions are being accepted for The Artifact Small Format Film Festival until November 1, 2023.

The Artifact Small Format Film Festival (formerly the $100 Film Festival) is Calgary’s oldest film festival and one of the only ones in the world to exclusively screen Super 8 and 16mm films.

When the festival was born in 1992, it showcased eight short films on Super 8. The name sprung from the challenge to shoot a short film on four rolls of Super 8 – which tallied to the cost of $100. In following years, the festival dropped the budgetary limit and allowed 16mm film, which shifted the focus from low-budget to quality small-format films. Thus, the name was changed to the Artifact Small Format Film Festival in 2017 so as to better represent the festival’s role as an international celebration of creative storytelling on celluloid.

Over the years, Artifact has expanded to include the popular Film/Music Explosion!, commission projects, and various partnerships.

Artifact is proud to be among the select few celluloid festivals worldwide that continue to keep the medium alive, and to draw celluloid lovers to Calgary each year.
