Name a Seat

More than a Comfy Seat: Your Portal to the Magic of Cinema

Honour a special film fan, mark an important anniversary, or name a seat for yourself, and make a lasting contribution to support the future of cinema in your community.

With a tax-deductible donation of $1,000, an engraved plaque will be installed on one of our newly upgraded seats in the VIFF Centre’s main theatre.

An Investment in Film and VIFF's Future

Your donation will support our renovation and film programming, helping us to bring the best in independent Canadian, Indigenous, and international cinema to the VIFF Centre.  Leave a lasting legacy – and be a part of VIFF history.
