For the first time ever, the VISFF will have three screenings of the selected films – two evening shows and a matinee on Feb. 7.

“The Festival was jam-packed last year,” said Blakeborough. “We wanted to give our audience another opportunity to check out these great short films, so we decided to hold a matinee screening on Feb. 7. The evening shows are always very busy, so this will give our audience another opportunity to check out the Festival.”

A selection committee will comb through the films this month and announce the shortlist of selected films by January 1. All the films will be shown at each of the three shows on Feb. 6 and 7. The opening night will start at 7pm and will also feature a musical performance by Nanaimo’s own Top Men. After the matinee on Saturday at 2pm, there will be a filmmakers' Q&A with several of the films' directors. Following the final show on Saturday at 7pm, there will be an Awards ceremony and after-party (held at the Firehouse Grill).

The VISFF is a Nanaimo Arts Council Event. Tickets are $15 ($10 for students) and are available at, at the Port  Theatre, and at 250-754-8550.
