High School Program + Films For Youth


Now in its 15th successful year, the Vancouver International Film Festival’s High School Outreach Program offers a unique opportunity for Vancouver-area students to experience the best that international cinema has to offer. Given that an overwhelming number of films distributed in Canada are made in Hollywood, we like to present a program to counter that fact - a program that reflects the Festival’s “Same Planet, Different Worlds” theme.

This year, VIFF is exceptionally pleased to offer a selection of dramas and documentaries that are of particular relevance to today’s youth. The locations in these films may be exotic but their themes are universal. Consequently, this program offers something for every young person looking to expand his or her horizons.

Teachers can book screenings by downloading the PDF form (available in early September) or by contacting Laine Slater, laine@viff.org

Special ticket price of $7 per student attending as a high school group.
