Support VIFF

It was incredible to bring the 40th edition of VIFF back to Vancouver theatres this year. Thank you for supporting us and helping to raise more than $85,000 to help sustain VIFF for the future. This was the largest campaign in our history, and at a critical time for arts organizations, your love of independent film means so much.

As a not-for-profit organization VIFF relies on ticket sales during the festival and year-round as part of our funding model. We’re returning, but the going is slow. With the VIFF Centre finally reopened we’re delighted to be able to enjoy cinema together again. With capacities limited though, we need help to serve our audiences with ambition and certainty. Every donation lends a bit of stability to an otherwise unpredictable and challenging year ahead.

The revitalized VIFF Centre is a place for discussion, education and innovation. And beyond the physical space, a source of inspiration, reconnection and discovery for the whole community. Along with you and local filmmakers, we’re welcoming back the dozens of other festivals and arts organizations who we host and who contribute to Vancouver’s vibrant cultural landscape.

Film has always been a powerful tool for creating collective meaning through shared experiences. As you return to those shared experiences of the big screen, and feed your curiosity again, please show your love of cinema through a one-time donation or pledge, there has never been a more meaningful time to show your commitment to the arts.
