Mission / description Both in terms of admissions and number of films screened, VIFF is among the five largest film festivals in North America. The international line-up includes the pick of the world’s top film fests and many undiscovered gems. Three main programming platforms make our festival unique: we screen the largest selection of East Asian films outside of that region, we are one of the biggest showcases of Canadian film in the world and we have a large and important nonfiction program.

Attracting a large, attentive and enthusiastic audience of film lovers, the festival remains accessible, friendly and culturally diverse. As the critics say, VIFF is very much a festival “designed for the benefit of people who love films and people who make them.”
