We’re uniquely positioned and known as a leading champion of Alberta and Canadian film. We’re proud that we’ve been named by Movie Maker Magazine as one of “50 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee” for the second year in a row, and that we’re also an Oscar-qualifying festival for short films! None of this would be possible without our volunteers. Perks for volunteers include: General admission vouchers, Gala tickets, Festival Passes, and an invite to the Volunteer party a week after the festival!

Don’t we all deserve a safe and secure place to call home? Meet Keeley. Keely is in her mid-twenties. She uses a wheelchair, relies on an oxygen machine and has four mental health diagnoses. She has couch surfed, lived in a group home, a long-term care facility and a hospital bed for most of her young adult life. Meet John. John had polio at 14 and a plane crash at 28 that severely damaged his legs and spine. The accident left John penniless and in a wheelchair. Meet Marcos. Marcos spent 35 years at sea under Communist rule. He escaped to Canada, worked minimum wage jobs and lived paycheck to paycheck to feed and raise his family who followed. He was left with little for retirement. Meet Crystal. Crystal is a young mother of four. She lived fearful day after day with unrelenting spousal abuse. For her and her children’s safely, she fled, with nothing but her children … for their safety and hers. Keeley, John, Marcos and Crystal now have a place to call home – no longer scared, cold or hungry; no longer plagued by crushing anxiety and hopelessness — thanks to RESOLVE’s Partner agencies. March 31, 2017 marks the end of the RESOLVE Campaign, a partnership of nine established and well-respected social service agencies, collaborating to build Calgary’s urgently needed affordable and supported rental housing, for up to 3,000 homeless and vulnerable Calgarians.
