Please check back later for special offers from our VIFF partners.

One of the most effective ways to recognize a particularly wonderful film and help boost the career of emerging filmmaking talent is through supporting VIFF’s annual Prizes & Awards Program.

Some donors choose to fund filmmaker prizes or awards on a year-to-year basis with an annual gift of $2,000 to $25,000, depending on the prize category and cash award.

An initial commitment of at least three years is requested, after which the award can be renewed one year at a time.

In the coming months, VIFF will be introducing a new, expanded donor program with exciting festival and year-round benefits. We look forward to sharing the details with you as soon as possible.

You may wonder why VIFF needs donations?

As a charitable cultural organization, VIFF relies on the generous philanthropic contributions of people like you who love film and are passionate about our city’s own Vancouver International Film Festival.

Festival partnerships afford our corporate sponsors a variety of options for leveraging their partnership, including marketing/brand awareness, access to our audience for sampling, presence at our gala special events, and tickets for hosting/hospitality.

Each of our partnership opportunities is customized for a particular sponsor, depending on your needs, objectives, and budget.

Opportunities may include:
