Support Our VIFF Community
Make a Gift Today
We are overwhelmed with the support that you have shown VIFF this year. Together, you’ve given over $25,000 to our VIFF Centre Reimagined project. You’ve exceeded our goal by more than $10,000! And the Lochmaddy Foundation has generously offered to match every single dollar, so that every donation you made has twice the impact. Thank you!
Without a doubt, the VIFF Centre is one of the best venues to screen a film as a filmmaker and a film buff. Great films, passionate film audiences, and now with an exciting new Education Suite and interactive New Media Lab. I’m so looking forward to the day when I can attend a screening at the VIFF Centre again and afterwards, hop over to the noodle shop a block away and spend the next hour discussing one of their evocative films!
KDocsFF couldn’t be prouder to partner with the new VIFF Centre! The new Studio Space, Media Lab, and Education Suite add to the values of community, collaboration, and storytelling already at the heart of the VIFF world. As our essential social justice festival partner, the VIFF Centre is the difference-maker: an innovative space for engagement and change.

The renovations at the VIFF Centre will provide an exciting new space for film lovers and filmmakers! I’m particularly thrilled about the education suite which will give future filmmakers including those participating in the VIFF Mentorship Catalyst program, the opportunity to gather, see films and discuss collectively while building their own community and forming relationships with other film professionals. Having a dedicated space for emerging creators to share ideas and learn together will undoubtedly lead to creative collaborations, new inspirations and exciting projects in the future. Whether it's having a safe spot to debrief after a challenging screening, or a space for formal workshops, I see the education suite as being a community hub for program participants to grow their careers during and beyond the festival.

Super cool to hear about the redeveloped VIFF Centre! It's an exciting addition to an already wonderful venue, and we've been proud to play our documentaries there. I'm most excited for the micro cinema and to experience the new media lab as we're currently working on an interactive project.
