The tenth annual Vancouver Island Short Film Festival (VISFF) was a huge success with more than 770 people in attendance at three shows on Feb. 6 and 7.
“I couldn’t be more happy with this year’s VISFF,” said Festival Director Johnny Blakeborough. “We’ve been working hard for months preparing for the festival and wanted to make sure our tenth year was something special. With record breaking attendance and such a great response from our audience, it looks like we succeeded.”
The VISFF is tonight at Malaspina Theatre!
The doors will open at 6pm, show starts at 7pm! Tickets can be still purchased through the Port Theatre until 4 pm today for $15 or $10 for students. We will also have some tickets available at the door, cash only (sorry). Friday and Saturday night shows are nearly sold out, the matinee show still has plenty of tickets.
The show is at the Malaspina Theatre (Vancouver Island University, Nanaimo Campus) in building 310, here is a link to a campus map. The closest parking lots are G and H, accessed from Fifth Street (Entrance 5D). All parking at the university is pay parking until 8 pm. You do not need to pay for parking after 8pm.
For our out of town guests here is a link to Google Maps to help in finding the University.
