Victoria Film Festival Online

February 4, 2021 - February 14, 2021


The Victoria Film Festival is adapting to public health orders and launching its first-ever online festival. The 27th edition of the annual festival includes 50 feature films and 23 shorts. The entire slate of films will be available across British Columbia, and can be streamed at any time over the 10-day festival. Audiences can purchase single tickets to films for $8 (plus tax), or an all-access subscription for $79 (plus tax).

The feature films and shorts that make up the festival lineup were selected by a programming team of eight people and come from 21 different countries, with almost half of them being directed by women. Here are five films you don’t want to miss:
