One of the most effective ways to recognize a particularly wonderful film and help boost the career of emerging filmmaking talent is through supporting VIFF’s annual Prizes & Awards Program.
Some donors choose to fund filmmaker prizes or awards on a year-to-year basis with an annual gift of $2,000 to $25,000, depending on the prize category and cash award.
An initial commitment of at least three years is requested, after which the award can be renewed one year at a time.
VIFF looks to recognize established and emerging filmmakers in several key categories:
- International Film – Directorial Debut
- Canadian Film – First Feature
- New Cinemas of East Asia
- Documentaries and Non-fiction Feature Films
- Environmental Films
- Short Film – Canadian and International
- Audience Choice in multiple categories
