Northwestfest

Take in Canada’s longest running documentary film festival!

Welcome to NorthwestFest! This exciting event will introduce you to an amazing selection of new films, along with a few audience favourites that you may have missed at prior editions of the festival.


Northwestfest, formerly Global Visions Film Festival, is Canada’s longest running documentary film festival. In past years they have proudly presented exclusive Edmonton premieres such as Chasing Ice, How to Survive a Plague, The Act of Killing, Central Park Five, and Call Me Kuchu, just to name a few. Northwestfest is Western Canada’s leading destination for documentary, and they’re just getting started!
