Heads Up Vancouver: VIFF 2020 is coming!

Local film lovers rejoice, the 39th annual Vancouver International Film Festival is coming! September 24th through October 7th the biggest celebration of film in the city, and one of the biggest in North America, will once again be running.

This year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic the festival is going entirely online this year, much like the just ended Fantasia Festival. Both Simon and I have received accreditation this year so we hope to bring you all kinds of coverage, which you can keep track of using the VIFF 2020 tag here on Awesome Friday!

In order to facilitate the festival moving online, the VIFF is launching VIFF Connect, a streaming platform that will make the lineup of film available to residents of BC, and VIFF talks and conferences will be available to viewers around the world. More details on this are available on the VIFF website.

The full lineup of films is being announced this morning. Time to get excited!

As always, if you are enjoying the site and all the news and reviews we bring you, please considering becoming a patron to help us keep doing it. Support starts are just 2$/month.
