Guest Accreditation


VIFF Guest & Industry Accreditation is offered to a select number of film professionals, providing complimentary access to Festival screenings. We accept requests for accreditation from individuals and representatives of organizations who have a professional interest in attending the Festival. Guest accreditation is granted at the discretion of the Festival, and application is no guarantee of acceptance. Accreditation is granted to individuals and is non-transferable. A $75 processing fee will be charged to successful applicants.

To apply for Accreditation, please complete the VIFF Accreditation Form in one of two ways:

1) Fill out the Microsoft Word Form, save it and submit it as an e-mail attachment.


2) Print the PDF version of the form, complete by hand and either fax it to 604.688.8221 or scan it and submit it as an attachment:

Other than in the case of invited guests, VIFF will not issue invitation letters for visa purposes.


We are unable to provide local businesses or individuals complimentary accreditation, which is offered only to participating filmmakers and their agents, sponsors of the festival, and select media, film buyers or programmers. As a non-profit society we depend heavily on community support and earned income.
