Media Accrediation

Check back to this page August 1st for the 2014 Media Accrediation Form. 

The Vancouver International Film Festival grants complimentary accreditation, in the form of a media pass valid for all media and festival screenings EXCEPT galas and parties, to journalists who cover film on a regular basis for established media.

  • Your accreditation status will be advised in writing via email by September 13, 2014
  • If you are a member of a group and require a Generic Pass to be shared amongst yourselves – eg the ‘arts & culture’ contributors to a campus newspaper or website – please write “Generic Pass” in the upper-right hand corner of your application
  • Please assist us by filling in the bottom questions on the application form
  • Please mail or courier your application; do not fax or email them (out-of-province applicants excepted)
  • If you are solely covering galas, you do not need to fill out the Accreditation Application. Please email with “Working Pass” in the subject line and include in the email a description of your intended coverage in order to get on our Gala guest list
  • If you are covering a limited number of films under a specific topic, another option is to issue you complementary tickets to appropriate films – please fill out the accreditation form, but note at the bottom as specifically as possible your area of interest
  • If you wish to cover VIFF’s Film + TV Forum, please visit the Forum's media accreditation page starting August 1, 2014
