Archive:Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival
Since 1999, the city of Vancouver hosts an film festival dedicated to the outdoors:
" The Festival's goal is to approach the outdoor communities of the Pacific North-West, and to offer them films and slide presentations dealing with mountain culture and mountain sports. The Festival will also create a platform for the exchange of ideas between filmmakers, outdoor activists, and the public, while at the same time it will support the most artistic and effective ways of communicating outdoor related issues." - Mission statement from VIMFF website.
Over the span of a week, every evening will present a select scene related to the outdoors: from mountain biking to paddling to climbing while mixing in films from various countries around the world.
