Every year at the Vancouver International Film Festival, Canada’s best feature films, documentaries and shorts are presented in one of the world’s largest annual public exhibitions of new Canadian film. From an average of more than 900 submissions, our programmers select over 75 features and shorts. Vancouver moviegoers respond with tremendous enthusiasm, making this one of our best-attended series and a point of pride for VIFF.
