Join the 19th Annual Vancouver Short Film Festival Selection Committee!

The 19th Annual Vancouver Island Film Short Festival (VISFF) invites applications for volunteer Selection Committee members to assist in selecting the short films for the 2024 VISFF program happening online and in person on March 22nd & 23rd, 2024.

The VISFF is seeking a committee of 5 passionate individuals who are willing to work with like-minded Selection Committee members to build a film program of 20 films that celebrates diverse voices and perspectives in the art of storytelling.

Films will be viewed virtually and on your own schedule, through FilmFreeway from Nov 2023 – Feb 2024. The Selection Committee members will be expected to watch a short list of submitted short films and submit ratings for each film.

Jury members must have access to a computer and internet to review submissions and attend a remote Selection Committee meeting to finalize the short film selections. The Selection Committee will work with the Festival Director and Submissions Coordinator to select films that include diverse perspectives and genres and are an impactful viewing experience for the audience.  A person who has directed, produced, acted in, or is affiliated with any film submitted to the upcoming 2024 festival is not eligible to sit on the Selection Committee.

Selected jurors will receive 2 full Festival Passes for the in person or online show and a $100 honorarium.

Filmmakers, film enthusiasts, educators and arts and culture professionals from Canada and beyond are welcome to apply!
