Film Submissions

For The VIMFF 2024

The VIMFF provides outdoor communities around the world with international mountain film screenings, live multimedia presentations, photo exhibitions, workshops, seminars and other special events.

We offer in person shows as well as virtual streaming events, and our World Tour travelling shows featuring award winning films. Driven by a passion for film, culture and the outdoors, we seek to advance the appreciation of films and film-making while inspiring, informing and educating the public in these areas.

The VIMFF runs two separate film submission drives for our main events – our Fall Series in November and our Festival in February.

Film submissions are now closed for the VIMFF 2024.

For enquiries or late submissions, please reach out to our Program Director, Kiran Basra at kiran@vimff.org. Our next round of film submissions will open around August 2024 as we prepare for the VIMFF Fall Series 2024.

The VIMFF 2024 - February - March 2024:

The VIMFF 2024 will run from February 23 – March 3, 2024

Submissions are now open until November 30.

It will be a hybrid festival of in person events at theatres across Vancouver and virtual programs offered online for streaming.

All films selected will compete for our Annual Film Awards and will also enjoy a share of the revenues from our virtual programming.

Preference will be given to those films not already available online for free.
