Victoria Film Festival


Support your local film festival!

The Victoria Film Festival:

  • Supports local and national films and filmmakers
  • Brings the world to Victoria
  • Presents the diversity of life
  • Is a non-profit organization operating mainly with the help of volunteers, public funding, private donations and sponsorships

Your contribution allows us to:

  • Provide outreach and activities to schools, libraries and youth groups
  • Inspire conversations and broaden minds
  • Bring in local films, Canadian-made films and films from around the world… and sometimes filmmakers too!

Donate $100 or more to have your name displayed during the Festival at our central venue: The Vic Theatre!

Membership benefits range from early announcements of our film schedule, advance ticket availability, access to the VIP lounge, educational experiences and more. View the 2017 Donor Membership Levels below!

2017 Donor Membership Level Chart

At every level, a tax-deductible receipt will be made out for the maximum allowable amount. If you would like to receive a tax-deductible receipt for the full amount donated, you may choose to waive the benefits associated with your membership level.


*Note — to have your donation recognized in the Program Guide, we must receive a donation or pledge by December 15th.
