WHY SPONSOR VLAFF?

The 14th Vancouver Latin American Film Festival, August 25 - September 4, 2016, will build on its reputation for programming a dynamic selection of the best of contemporary Latin American cinema at over 50 screenings and events in Vancouver, BC this fall. Thousands of film lovers of Latin American and non-Latin American backgrounds alike will attend screenings and participate in events, learning opportunities and celebrations, offering a unique opportunity to sponsors for exposure across the Lower Mainland, Canada and the world.

VLAFF OFFERS A NUMBER OF EXCEPTIONAL HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDING:

  • Premieres and screenings of award-winning films, 98% of which will not be commercially released in Canada;
  • Venues to showcase the next generation of Latin American and Latin-Canadian filmmakers;
  • Interactive panel discussions and other educational and outreach events;
  • Multi-media art and music presentations; and
  • Cultural and community events including an annual free film series and an active volunteer program.
