Vancouver International Youth Film Festival


In the summer of 2022, in collaboration with the Vancouver Chinese Film Festival, we hosted an excellent week of events: film screenings, workshops and incredible award ceremonies. It was our first in-person festival since the pandemic and was a huge success. We are excited to announce that the Vancouver International Youth Film Festival will be returning to host our own stand-alone festival week. Stay tuned for more info!

A look back at the 2022 festival:

Who we Are:

We bring great young filmmakers to the big screen.

Years of experience

VIYFF started as a spin-off of the highly successful Vancouver Chinese Film Festival in the year 2018. We screen films by young filmmakers from all backgrounds.


After two years of virtual festivals, VIYFF is returning to having in person film screenings and other events.  This year, 2022, we will be presenting a joint festival program along with the Vancouver Chinese International Film Festival.  

2023 Festival Info coming soon...
