Vancouver’s hospitality is world-renowned, and VIFF is very proud to work with our city’s finest restaurants and hotels to provide film festival-goers with an enjoyable, first-rate experience.

Whether caring for our festival guests and film fans, hosting visiting filmmaker dinners, or catering our galas and special events, our hotel and restaurant partners deliver a wonderful showcase of what makes Vancouver special.

While planning your stay in Vancouver, we encourage you to explore our partner hotels and restaurants and tell them VIFF sent you!

One of the most effective ways to recognize a particularly wonderful film and help boost the career of emerging filmmaking talent is through supporting VIFF’s annual Prizes & Awards Program.

Some donors choose to fund filmmaker prizes or awards on a year-to-year basis with an annual gift of $2,000 to $25,000, depending on the prize category and cash award.

An initial commitment of at least three years is requested, after which the award can be renewed one year at a time.

In the coming months, VIFF will be introducing a new, expanded donor program with exciting festival and year-round benefits. We look forward to sharing the details with you as soon as possible.

You may wonder why does VIFF need donations?

As a charitable cultural organization, VIFF relies on the generous philanthropic contributions of people like you who love film and are passionate about our city’s own Vancouver International Film Festival.

One of the benefits of becoming a festival sponsor is the right to entertain a group of clients during the busy and exciting fall film festival.

All of our festival sponsorships include hospitality and entertaining rights, including tickets to films and Galas/special events.

Festival partnerships afford our corporate sponsors a variety of options for leveraging their partnership, including marketing/brand awareness, access to our audience for sampling, presence at our gala special events, and tickets for hosting/hospitality.

Each of our partnership opportunities is customized for a particular sponsor, depending on your needs, objectives, and budget.
