Your support directly impacts filmmakers.

All filmmakers are fairly compensated for the right to show their film, directly supporting this form of art and providing a much needed catalyst and recognition for advancement.

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.

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