Film Festival Series

International Shorts

These days, brevity ain't just the soul of wit. Our entire online world is abuzz with rapid-fire communication, and moving-image "clips" tend to last about the length of a commercial break. thank heavens there are content creators out there who are treating their communications so seriously that they are making fabulous, artistic, big-screen-worthy cinema!

VIFF is ramping up its commitment to short films and we are delighted to have a great sponsor for this investment. The short-film format has been around since the dawn of cinema, but never has it been so relevant. We've featured extensive programs of Canadian short films for decades, and our goal now is to expand the number of international shorts in our program.
