The 10th Annual Edmonton Short Film Festival Brings Back Their Red Carpet Gala


It’s finally time for the Edmonton Short Film Festivals Red Carpet Gala to come back and highlight some of the incredible short filmmakers that we have here in Alberta! The timing couldn’t be more perfect in that not only are we finally out of the grasp of COVID but they are also celebrating their 10-year anniversary! This year, you can expect a 3 day series of events from October 14 to 16, 2022.

October 14, 7 – 9 PM at the Pearl Showroom in the Yellowhead Casino

What could be a better way to kick off this celebratory weekend than to indulge in some food, drinks, film and comedy? This Friday, you can come be entertained by iconic Indigenous comedian, Howie Miller who will be pairing his performance with screenings of comedic short films that have been brought out from the Edmonton Short Film Festivals archives. 

“Howie Miller is one of the funniest corporate and club comedians in North America. He is a First Nation Descendant of the Cree Nation and was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. His quick wit and unique point of view on multi-ethnic stereotypes is enjoyed by all audiences, regardless of age, race, or sex; and has garnered numerous television appearances and placed him in great demand on the corporate comedy circuit. Howie’s hilarious routine, mixed with stellar impressions has the audience laughing from start to finish.”

This event is sponsored by EPCOR through their Heart & Soul fund.
