The Vancouver International Film Festival is one of the five largest film festivals in North America and one of Vancouver’s premier cultural events. This year’s festival takes place from September 26 to October 11, with screenings held in venues across the city.
The new Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality Film Lounge will showcase new and innovative forms of media arts, and engage VR/AR content creators. There is no facility in British Columbia for storytellers who work in this sector to share their work. The lounge will be a space for students to screen their works and connect with other content creators in the region.
Founded in 1982, the Greater Vancouver International Film Festival Society is a not-for-profit organization that operates the internationally acclaimed Vancouver International Film Festival. It also offers year-round programming at the Vancouver International Film Centre in downtown Vancouver.
