Film Festival

One Of The Largest Film Festivals in North America

This fall, the 33rd annual Vancouver International Film Festival welcomes some of the world's finest films to one of the most beautiful cities on the planet. For 16 days, almost 350 films from over 70 countries will play on nine screens. Plus: Dozens of directors, writers and actors will be on hand for insightful—and occasionally provocative—post-screening Q&A sessions. In addition to entertaining and essential viewing for film lovers, VIFF also provides invaluable resources for media professionals with VIFF Industry: Film & Television Forum’s development sessions, one-on-one meetings and networking receptions. 

Our first round of films will be announced in early August with weekly updates to follow. Be sure to sign-up for the VIFF newsletter or join us on Facebook and Twitter so you can stay in tune with Festival news and the year-round programming at the Vancity Theatre.
