Vancouver - October 2021

Where East Meets West on the Pacific Coast

The Vancouver International Film Festival is one of the largest film festivals in North America, featuring more than 300 films each year.

The festival showcases internationally-acclaimed and award-winning films as well as lesser known movies. It also boasts the largest selection of Asian-produced films of any festival outside of Asia, and one of the largest collections of Canadian-made productions anywhere.

Films from over 70 different countries are typically featured and all in their original soundtracks and languages.
