The festival will take place at the Vancity Theatre on November 15 and 16. At last year’s festival, 29 films were screened and over $15,000 in prizes were awarded to both emerging and established filmmakers! Students at all levels (not just colleges and universities now), recent graduates and professional filmmakers from B.C. are eligible to enter. Filmmakers wishing to submit more than one film should also take advantage of the special bundle deals for both professionals (all films from the same director/production company) and students (all films made at the same school).

Did you know they also accept entries of web series episodes? Find out more at for full entry details and to submit your film online.

All professional artists receive an artist fee after screening at the festival. There’s no longer a time limit, but remember, the shorter, the better!

About the Vancouver Short Film Festival

The Vancouver Short Film Festival (VSFF) is committed to the celebration of the vibrant community of short film, video and animation artists on the Canadian West Coast. They hope to build ties between emerging and established professionals, and provide an arena where all short filmmakers, including students, can screen their films in public and support their fellow colleagues. Their ultimate goal is to connect short filmmakers to a broader audience in order to grow the local film industry.
