Arc’teryx Adventure Film Grant

VIMFF and ARC’TERYX have partnered to present this $5000 filmmaker development grant to further our shared commitment to supporting Canadian adventure film.

This grant is intended to support emerging filmmakers specializing in mountain film. We hope it will help them kick start a successful career and enable them to produce a film they have been dreaming of. The recipient will also get the opportunity to be mentored throughout the process by the ARC’TERYX professional and in house media team.

Our aim is to support the development of Canadian adventure filmmakers, promote self-propelled wilderness adventures and bring the resulting story to the VIMFF screen for our community to enjoy. Submit an application here.

MEC Adventure Grant

The MEC Adventure Grant will award funds to local teams who have exploratory and human powered objectives in adventurous arenas. Our aim is to support Canadian adventures both in our own backyard and around the world, while promoting a multitude of outdoor pursuits and bringing the resulting story to the VIMFF stage for our community to enjoy.
