    Why should you sponsor?

    VBIFF is a dynamic, innovative and audacious festival whose ambition is to promote the development of the independent film industry and to showcase films on the realities of Black people from around the neighbourhood to around the globe. Investing in Afro Canadian artists working together in showcasing and celebrating our stories on the big screen. The VBIFF wants to deal with issues and change people perceptions with works that raise questions, that provoke, that make us smile, that celebrate our excellence, that shock us to the core…The need for a space to communicate with the community, visitors, tourists, face to face in this medium is long over due. Putting on such needed events in Vancouver, BC, encourage unity and a positive expression especialy amongst Black people and their perception in the community.
