High School Program


Last year, VIFF welcomed over 1,500 secondary students to experience exceptional international cinema.

From stories of youth exploring identity to films that capture historical moments as they’re unfurling, great world cinema develops challenges our perspectives and confronts our presuppositions about the world, promotes inquiry, critical thinking skills, and ignites imaginations. Be they set in Senegal, Syria, France, Germany, or right here in Canada, these stories will connect young audiences with some of the most powerful forces shaping our contemporary world and identities.
