We are delighted to extend you a personal invitation to participate as a Sponsor for Nanaimo Arts Council’s 12th annual Vancouver Island Short Film Festival. Please click to download the VISFF Sponsor Package.

For the past 11 years, the VISFF has presented the best in short films attracting hundreds of local and international artists and film lovers. Since its beginnings, the VISFF has presented 189 short films from 528 submissions to over 4800 audience members.

The VISFF grows bigger and better each year, providing you with the opportunity to positively communicate your company’s name, image, products, and services to a clearly defined, socially aware, influential, and receptive audience that has historically demonstrated a high degree of loyalty to our supporters.

Your support directly impacts Vancouver Island filmmakers.

Tash Baycroft of Nanaimo debuted his locally produced dramatic short film “Gone” at the 2007 Festival. It has since received rave reviews worldwide, showing at prestigious events that include the New York Film and Video Festival and the Cannes Film Festival.

Parksville filmmaker Paul Wittington submitted his short animated film “Android 207” to our 2007 Festival and won Best Film, Best Technical, and People’s Choice awards. This wonderfully crafted film has since been shown at the Beloit International Film Festival and the Arizona International Film Festival. It also won awards at the Milwaukee International Film Festival, including People’s Choice.

All filmmakers are fairly compensated for the right to show their film.

Thank you for choosing VISFF as a community partner. The VISFF is volunteer based organization made up of film enthusiasts and art community experts.
