Celebrating Canadian Short Film: VSFF Opens Call for Entries to all Canadian Filmmakers

Calling all Canadian Filmmakers! As of July 1st, 2021, the Vancouver Short Film Festival (VSFF) is accepting submissions of short films from filmmakers nation-wide. For the first time ever filmmakers from all over Canada will be eligible to screen their films at VSFF, starting with our 12th annual festival running from January 28th - 30th, 2022. We invite British Columbian and national talent to join our celebration of the best of Canadian short film.


At VSFF, elevating BC-made cinema and fostering the careers of BC filmmakers remains a key priority. We aim to build the film community by connecting emerging and established filmmakers from all over the province, and we are thrilled to expand that mission by connecting BC filmmakers with their counterparts from across the country to celebrate our successes together. Our goal is to further amplify, support, and strengthen our independent filmmaking community and its incredible talent from coast to coast.


Be a part of Vancouver’s leading short film festival and apply today! From July 1-4, 2021, VSFF is offering a 30% discount on all submissions to our 2022 festival. Filmmakers can go to the VSFF Film Freeway and use the discount code VSFFCAN22 at checkout to claim the discount. For submission purposes, a film is considered Canadian if at least one key cast member or key crew member is a Canadian resident. See FilmFreeway for full submission guidelines: https://filmfreeway.com/vsff.


Our Call for Entries will close on October 15th, 2021.
