Vancouver Int'l Film Festival
The Vancouver International Film Festival was started in 1982. The festival's purpose is to encourage the understanding of other nations through the art of cinema, to foster the art of cinema, to facilitate the meeting in British Columbia of cinema professionals from around the world, and to stimulate the motion picture industry in British Columbia and Canada.
The film festival shows works from around the world, and has established a reputation as a stepping stone for many young Asian filmmakers. In 2004, Vancouver's film festival was the largest exhibitor of Asian films outside of Asia.
The Vancouver International Film Festival is operated by the Greater Vancouver International Film Festival Society, a provincially registered, non-profit, education and cultural organization incorporated under The Society Act of British Columbia, and a federally registered charity under the Canadian Income Tax Act.
