Media Accreditation

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 12, 2015
  • If you wish to cover the galas please email with “Gala 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 the VIFF Industry Conference, please indicate on the Accreditation Form. You can learn more about VIFF Industry here.
Media Accreditation for VIFF 2015 is now closed. If you have any questions, please email
