The five-member Selection Committee for the 12th annual Vancouver Island Short Film Festival has a monumental task at hand. With over 70 films already submitted and more rolling in every day, VISFF is on track to receive the most submissions in its 12-year history, including a record number of international films.
“I can’t wait to delve into the eight-plus straight hours of short films,” says Reb Stevenson, co-creator of Pancake Manor, a wildly-popular series of puppet-infused pop music videos for kids that boasts half a billion YouTube views. “I have popped a lot of popcorn in advance!”
The Vancouver Island Short Film Festival is now accepting entries for it’s 12th year. The Festival will take place February 10 & 11, 2017 at the Malaspina Theatre at Vancouver Island University. Films can be submitted on our homepage through the FilmFreeway link. For rules and regulations see the Selection and Judging Committee Policy.
The early-bird entry fee is now in effect. Enter now and until October 12th pay only $25 per entry!

About The Festival
The 12th Vancouver Island Short Film Festival will take place on February 10 and 11, 2017 at the Malaspina Theatre at Vancouver Island University.
Supported by the Nanaimo Arts Council, the Festival debuted in 2006 and held a sold out screening of short films by local filmmakers at the Nanaimo Entertainment Centre.
There are many feature film festivals on Vancouver Island, but none that specifically serve short filmmakers. Many of our entries feature local actors, writers, directors, musicians and film technicians. The 2016 Festival will showcase amazing short films in a multitude of genres and styles.
The Vancouver Island Short Film Festival creates opportunities for filmmakers, not only to screen their films, but to network with other film professionals and inspire growth in our film community. For more information contact us at email@example.com or 250-802-9462.
