Support Our VIFF Community
At VIFF, we believe that cinema isn't simply entertainment, it's an act of engagement with both the art form and the human experience.
We believe we have the duty, and the privilege, to offer affordable access and develop catalytic education opportunities for filmmakers and audiences alike.
We believe cinema creates better global citizens.
This is why we are asking for your help.

The coming months represent the greatest challenge we’ve faced in our 38-year history. Like so many of you, we've been hit hard. But rather than be diminished or defeated, we’ll take this opportunity to redefine ourselves.
Once reopened, the revitalized VIFF Centre will be a place for discussion, education and innovation. And it won't be just a physical space but also a source of reconnection and inspiration that will help this city heal. Along with you and local filmmakers, we’ll welcome back the dozens of other festivals and arts organizations who we host and who contribute to Vancouver’s vibrant cultural landscape.
We also look forward to the 39th edition of our festival this fall. The size and scope of the event will be impacted by factors beyond our immediate control but it will remain founded in what unites us: empathy, compassion and understanding… Things that exceptional cinema instils in us.
If you are able to offer support through a one-time donation or pledge, there has never been a more meaningful time to show your commitment to the arts.
We are up for the fight and could use you in our corner.
