Vancouver International Film Festival 2022

Join us in celebrating the 41st Vancouver International Film Festival!

VIFF is back in-cinema for its 41st edition, which includes revamped film series and a new international film competition for emerging directors. This year’s program features roughly 130 feature films and 100 shorts screening across seven Vancouver venues, as well as 20 other events. All films will be presented in-cinema, with a small curated selection of titles available for streaming across British Columbia on VIFF Connect.

The Cinematheque is pleased to join with the Vancouver International Film Festival in co-presenting these in-cinema screenings during VIFF 2022.

You can find more information about the Festival at viff​.org
