BC's Best Shorts

Support the VSFF

The Vancouver Short Film Festival would not be possible without the support of sponsors. Your contributions allow us to continue raising awareness for BC artists working in short film, video and digital media.

Sponsors can assist the festival in various ways:

  • Cash
  • Prizes
  • Media/Marketing Support
  • Other in-kind services

In exchange for your support, you will be given the opportunity to reach thousands of filmmakers, students, alumni, film industry representatives, media, and moviegoers, while showing your commitment to the BC film community.

We hope that you will consider partnering with the Vancouver Short Film Festival, the official short film festival of the Canadian West Coast.

For detailed information on becoming a media sponsor or Community Partner, download the VSFF Sponsorship Package here or email sponsor (at) vsff.com.
