VIFF Industry Conference - September 29 - October 3, 2015


The premier screen-based media conference on the West Coast, VIFF Industry takes place during the heart of the Vancouver International Film Festival and offers valuable insights into the multi-faceted elements shaping the future of the industry. Offering five days of professional development and business networking for registered participants, session topics are wide-ranging and industry-relevant, from content creation and financing, to marketing and direct distribution, to storytelling and audience engagement. The 2015 program will allow delegates to view the screen based media landscape through a new lens with a special focus on Virtual Reality and Finding an Audience: the DNA of Discoverability.

A new initiative this year is VIFF Industry Exchange in partnership with the CMPA-BC - the only Canadian marketplace of its kind devoted specifically to Digital Online Content. This marketplace will serve to assist in upgrading our screen based community’s knowledge of the key players; provide networking opportunities to further develop business deals and relationships; and help to develop their skills in producing and selling online content.

All sessions take place at the Rogers Industry Centre located at Vancity Theatre, 1181 Seymour Street.
