ABOUT VFF

What is the largest, the longest, and the oldest on Vancouver Island?

(A) Bureaucracy    (B) Stubbornness    (C) VFF    (D) WTF

The Victoria Film Festival embodies the spirit of the cinematic arts on Vancouver Island. We worship cult films, practice wine & beer sacrifices, offer a ritual of initiation for emerging filmmakers, and bring unique artistic voices from Canada and around the world to local screens.

VFF is open to all forms of creative media, but it is deathly allergic to clichés. Every February, we roust hibernating Victorians and islanders, roll out the pink carpet for the sheer glam of it, and throw a 10-day film festival across the city.

Mission

  • The mission of the Victoria Film Festival: Impossible.
  • Why?
  • The mission of the Victoria Film Festival is to stimulate critical analysis and inspire individuals to recognize and utilize film as a creative tool.
  • Nah, you’re right, it’s Impossible – but we’re giving it a go anyway. Wheeeeeeeeee!

Vision

We do not look at the world through pink-coloured glasses, we simply see it as pink as a leaf, as blue as an orange, and as rainbowy as our ideas. Come and see for yourself. Or check out our VFF vision prescription eyewear.

Values

  • Integrity

Who do we like to hang with?

It’s been a long time coming but the world is opening its eyes to the brilliance of diversity. We have always shown it in our films and we strive to do it in our office.  We go for all the colours and flavours of the world and welcome everyone’s uniqueness. Thank heaven for her, he, and they, you make the world shine.
