What is the VIMFF?
Who We Are
Why the VIMFF?
We present unique outdoor films and content that illustrate experiences and cultures from all corners of the globe which brings communities together to promote positive values and active lifestyles.
The Society is aligned with the philosophy of the North Vancouver municipalities to promote, both locally and internationally, the natural beauty of North Vancouver and its status as one of the best places to visit and live, a place where nature and culture meet.
With the recent global pandemic, we have adapted our shows to a virtual setting, allowing us to connect with audiences in their homes while increasing our reach across the globe.
VIMFF is committed to improving the festival’s sustainability practices to reduce its environmental footprint. The Society recognizes the very real threat of habitat degradation and climate destruction.
In 2020 VIMFF established a board-level sustainability committee to build a baseline and set strategic objectives. Improvements will be made in areas such as procurement, printing, travel and local transportation, waste management, food and beverage selection and service, and venue considerations, such as convenience of location and energy usage. VIMFF will continue to program high-impact environmental content, plus be more proactive as community ecological stewards with local schools and organizations.
