The 40th Vancouver International Film Festival (Oct. 1 - 11, 2021) welcomed film fans, filmmakers and industry folks to 10 stellar days of cinema. Despite Covid-19 related protocols, we joined together safely in theatres and virtually to celebrate and share in the power of exceptional story telling.

What a joy it was to watch together, to hear the laughter, the applause and the silence as we immersed ourselves in the big screen.

Thank you to our audiences who attended in-person and online, who helped us to surpass our fundraising efforts and who continue to show support all year by joining our VIFF+ and Patron Circle membership programs. And, a big THANK YOU to all of our amazing volunteers without whom this festival would not be possible.

We look forward to welcoming you all to VIFF 2022.

In the meantime, you can continue to enjoy VIFF curated cinema all year at the VIFF Centre and on VIFF Connect. Sign up for our weekly VIFF News and join us for more exceptional cinema.
