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.  

We have many film screenings coming up in August.
