Vancouver Island Short Film Festival Submissions

VISFF Now Accepting Submissions For 2014 Festival

The Vancouver Island Short Film Festival (VISFF) is now accepting submissions for the 2014 show. The VISFF, which will celebrate its ninth anniversary in 2014, is an annual event that brings filmmakers and filmgoers together and continues to be the only short film festival on Vancouver Island that focuses on local talent. This year’s festival will take place on Feb. 7 and 8, 2014.

Now in its ninth year, the VISFF is a hugely successful event. Building on the success of eight previous years, the Festival continues to support local talent by providing filmmakers with an opportunity to screen their films in front of an audience. The Festival accepts films from any location, so local films will be shown along with films potentially from anywhere in the world.

The deadline for entry into the VISFF is November 1st, 2013. However, films submitted before October 1 will qualify for the Early Bird entry fee rate of $20. The Festival is looking for films in all genres, created by filmmakers of all levels of experience, with a running time of 12 minutes or less (including credits). Filmmakers may submit multiple entries, but each film requires a separate entry form and fee of $30 ($20 if submitted by October 1). Each film must be submitted separately (on a separate DVD etc.), and no filmmaker shall have more than two films selected for the show. The VISFF is a juried event, and filmmakers receiving the distinction of official selection are entitled to artist fees. For more information regarding film submission, filmmakers should visit for entry forms and Festival guidelines.

Drop off entries at the Nanaimo Arts Council in Nanaimo North Town Centre or mail to #259, 4750 Rutherford Road, Nanaimo, BC, V9T 4K6. Entry forms and Festival guidelines are available at For more information, email or call 250-729-3947.
