Screenings and Festivals

More than 350 films from 75 countries.  150,000 attendees.  Nearly a dozen screens across the city.  The Vancouver International Film Festival, held for two weeks each fall, is the highlight of the year for local cinema buffs, not to mention one of the five largest festivals in North America.  Long lines form outside theatres as fans eagerly await international gems, plus the biggest showcase of Canadian films in the world and an impressive selection from East Asia. 

But there's much more to the city's film scene.  The annual Latin American Film Festival showcases more than 50 films from throughout the Spanish-speaking world.  Each fall, downtown screens light up with poignant, award-winning movies and documentaries from Mexico to Argentina and everywhere in-between.

Western Canada's largest queer arts event, the Queer Film Festival is hosted each summer by the city's own Out on Screen Film Society.  It draws more than 10,000 attendees to see the best in queer independent cinema from throughout the world, shown on the city's best screens. 

Throughout the year, film fans can also get their fix at downtown's Vancity Theatre, which shows festival-style movies in a state-of-the-art facility tucked away off of busy Granville Street.  Vancity also hosts in-depth talks and social happenings for cinema buffs, including the popular VIFF Social Club, where distinguished guests chat about film over canapés and wine.
