The 39th edition of the Vancouver International Film Festival, running September 24 - October 7, will be presented as an online festival available to all British Columbians. To ensure the best possible user experience, VIFF is developing VIFF Connect, a new online streaming platform designed in partnership with CineSend, a Toronto-based industry leader in media solutions.
VIFF 2020 will showcase a robust program of 100 feature films including the vibrant blend of international selections from every corner of the globe, boundary-pushing Canadian work, adventurous East Asian cinema, provocative and inspiring documentaries, elevated genre cinema and festival favourites that see audiences flock to VIFF every year. Accompanying the features will be a large complement of short films, allowing audiences to discover the next generation of storytellers. Beyond the typical video-on-demand experience, VIFF aims to celebrate many of the films through engaging and interactive conversations with the filmmakers, providing the viewer insight into the inspiration and creative process behind each work of art.
Through VIFF Connect, the festival’s celebrated experiential and educational programming will be accessible to audiences across the country. Creator Talks will take viewers behind the camera, exploring today’s most talked about films and series. VIFF will continue to support British Columbia’s creative communities through the Totally Indie Day and VIFF AMP conferences, as well as the VIFF Immersed marketplace and exhibition. Meanwhile, the more intimate VIFF Labs, VIFF AMP Talent Accelerator and VIFF Catalyst, a mentorship program for filmmakers from under- or misrepresented backgrounds, provide access and training to the next wave of Canadian filmmakers.
