Northern Lights

The next wave of Canadian and Indigenous storytellers

A scintillating collection of cinema that includes debut features from past VIFF award winners and the Vancouver bows for films that launched at major international festivals. Two of our own world premieres harness the province’s cinematic potential to stunning effect, while a third investigates our city’s cultural erasure of Black communities. Throw a full-blown musical and some shapeshifting animation into the mix, and this year’s Northern Lights proves to be truly prismatic.
