Programme Tips

There are too many films/I am looking for something specific! How can I find something to watch?

There are over 90 films in the 2023 VQFF programme! We highly recommend using the filters on our online programme to seek out different genres, 2SLGBTQIA+ identities and experiences, countries, languages, and other categories that may interest you.

In addition to browsing online, you can also download our Calendar Flyer, which provides an overview of all 38 unique program blocks, including the film stills and a short logline.

Where can I find a printed copy of the Festival programme guide and/or calendar flyer?

During the Festival, programme guides and calendar flyers will be available for free at every VQFF event and screening.

Before the Festival, starting as early as mid-July, staff and volunteers distribute guides and flyers to local arts organizations and businesses all across Metro Vancouver. While we can’t guarantee they’ll have the guide in stock on any given day, these are the locations we try to re-stock:
