AGEC - Association for German Education in Calgary


The Association for German Education in Calgary (AGEC) supports, promotes and integrates quality German language programs and cultural activities in Calgary. It was founded by a group of motivated parents who successfully collaborated with the Calgary Board of Education to establish Calgary's first public German bilingual program. More than 10 years in operation, we are now an established charitable organization and support a variety of educational and cultural programs across the entire city ranging from playgroups and early music education for toddlers to a scholarship fund to support teacher education at the University of Calgary.

We meet monthly, usually on the second Monday of the month, at Richmond Co-op. A notice of meeting and agenda will be published under AGEC News and Events a few days prior to each meeting. Please feel free to come to our meetings if you would like to get involved!

Movie Night - Filmabend: Revision

Regisseur Philip Scheffner rollt einen 20 Jahre alten Kriminalfall wieder auf: Zwei Roma-Männer wurden bei einem illegalen Grenzübertritt an der polnisch-deutschen Grenze erschossen. Ihr Schicksal recherchiert Scheffner spannend wie

einen Thriller und schafft damit vielleicht einen der wichtigsten Filme der jüngeren deutschen Geschichte.

20 years after two Romanian Roma were shot down in a field after illegally crossing the German-Polish border, director Philip Scheffner subjects the sloppily handled case to a cinematic revision, creating a documentary as suspenseful as a thriller - and possibly one of the most important films in recent German history.
