VIMFF was accepting submissions for this years film competition from October 1st to November 15th and received a whopping 174 submissions this year. It was a fantastic year for adventure film, and our film selection committee had their work cut out trying to decide the finalists for this years festival. Today we are pleased to announce our line-up. We have 79 finalist films, more than ever before, spread out over our 23 shows, including 5 dedicated afternoon film matinees.
It is a truly international film festival this year, with films coming in from 18 different countries from all corners of the globe, including Chile, South Africa, Turkey, Norway and Tanzania! But the local film makers have not been out done, and 24 home-grown Canadian films will feature in the festival this year.
We also have lots of fresh content for those avid film buffs out there, with one World Premiere and 11 films screening in North America for the first time.
