The VIFF is an annual film festival held for two weeks in late September and early October. It is among the five largest film festivals in North America. It is operated by the Greater Vancouver International Film Festival Society, a provincially registered non-profit and federally registered charitable organization.
Three main programming platforms make VIFF unique: The Festival screens the largest selection of East Asian films outside of that region, the Festival is one of the biggest showcases of Canadian film in the world and VIFF has one of the a largest nonfiction program outside of a Documentary Film Festival.
Each year, the festival offers a number of juried and audience-voted awards.
