At the ANNEX
Vancouver Short Film Festival
The Vancouver Short Film Festival (VSFF) is thrilled to be back in theatres for our 13th annual festival, which will showcase innovative and original short films from across Canada. This year’s festival features 57 films across six programs, including 13 films in our popular After Dark block. All of this year’s films will screen in-person at the VIFF Centre from June 2nd - 4th. Films will also be available online via Eventive Virtual from June 2nd - 11th.
Our 2023 festival is one of “Rising Stars, Revolutionary Stories”, with a lineup that features bold storytelling and daring experimentation from some of Canada’s most talented filmmakers. We are proud to highlight British Columbia’s homegrown artists with 45 films from BC filmmakers, and to give a platform to up-and-coming talent by including 14 student films.
As part of our efforts to create opportunities for filmmakers, VSFF has organized a number of filmmaker-exclusive events to take place at the ANNEX during the festival. These include networking sessions, industry roundtables, and an awards presentation that will see the festival give out over $30,000 in cash and in-kind prizes.
At multiple venues in Vancouver.
