Vancouver International Film Festival

With 150,000 admissions, the Vancouver International Film Festival offers exceptional opportunity to interact with young, single, well-educated urban professionals with plenty of disposable income.

The 16-day festival shows some 380 films from 75+ countries on 10 theatre screens in downtown Vancouver. The 30th annual Vancouver International Film Festival takes place September 29 to October 14, 2011.

Vancouver International Film Centre

This state-of-the-art venue, featuring the luxurious 170-seat Vancity Theatre and the soaring steel and glass Citytv Atrium Lounge, offers partners year-round interaction with film-lovers. Your film centre sponsorship can be combined with film festival involvement for extra impact. The centre programs approximately three weeks of film screenings every month (rentals by other festivals and groups fill out the rest of the calendar). Opportunities include naming rights and proprietary platforms. Located in the vibrant Yaletown area of Vancouver, the centre is surrounded by high-rises, townhouses, restaurants, clubs and shops.

Film & Television Forum

The annual Film and Television Forum is the largest event of its kind in Western Canada (3,000 admissions, including 1,200 delegates). Geared toward the professional development of the local film and television community, it offers a series of panel discussions, tête-à-tête and speed dating sessions, master classes and workshops. This three-day event provides a unique platform to access domestic and global markets through the expertise of our guest speakers plus an opportunity for our delegates to meet and foster working relationships with their peers.
