VIFF Online High School Program

VIFF 2020 – Online High School Program
As we move forward with plans for our annual fall festival and year-round program, we are excited about finding new ways in which we can share the magic of cinema with teachers and students. From stories of youth exploring identity to films that capture historical moments and untold stories, we believe our student-focused films can be used as a powerful educational tool in developing critical thinking skills and exposure to different perspectives. Anticipating that this fall’s VIFF will primarily be online, we’re hoping to gauge your interest in an online version of our high school screening series. Whether you’ve participated in the past or not, your input will be invaluable. Our online program would see films curated by VIFF programmers made available through VIFF’s own online platform. Screenings could be complemented by Q&As with filmmakers or discussions with subject matter experts.

Camp Ignite 2020

Camp Ignite is excited to announce that we will be going ahead with a one day Mentorship program on August 9, 2020. Given the limitations of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the previous format of our program was unable to go ahead. The Justice Institute has enabled us to utilize their facility for the day to put on a condensed version for grade 12 students who would otherwise miss out on the opportunity of attending Ignite. We will be following all guidelines by the provincial health director and have identified appropriate activities and limited our youth participant number to accommodate social distance proximities.

Any youth still interested in applying can send applications to​campignitebc@gmail.com and we will contact them with further details on this and other future opportunities.
