Nur Box Theatre

Nur Box Experimental Film Festival is a free and publicly accessible film festival that focuses on experimental art based short films. Nur Box’s sole purpose is to provide Calgarians access to view locally and internationally produced independent works of short film, video, and media art, which might otherwise be inaccessible to the general public. 

Seeing a need for a platform for experimental films and animation, Nur Box strives to showcase the very best in short experimental audio visual projects from around the world. 

Nur Box started as a modular theatre with Box's positioned in public and private spaces all across the city waiting for curiouse explorers. The programming is always dynamic and sometimes challenging but always worth the time.


Due to Covid the festival has been changed from a daily screening to an annual festival taking place at the creative hub cSPACE in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The one day festival will take place on September 23rd 2023 screening in the Tree House theatre rooms and is free to the public. 

Accepted films will be programmed in short packages and screened multiple times throughout the day.
