The 24th annual Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival (VIMFF), running through February 28, continues its mission to celebrate outdoor adventure and mountain culture, and there's a range of topics from para-athlete Sam Danniels surf doc to recovering addict Harvey Wright who uses rock climbing as a therapeutic tool.


VIMFF connects the global outdoor community with international filmmakers, creators and speakers through mountain film screenings, live multimedia presentations, photography exhibitions, workshops, seminars and other special events. These offerings aim to illustrate experiences and cultures from around the world to bring communities together to promote positive values and active lifestyles.

VIMFF has adapted its shows to a virtual setting due to Covid-19, allowing it to connect with audiences in their homes while increasing its global reach. It has expanded its programming to provide regular online content throughout the year.

Individual tickets cost $9 for films and $17 for shows and workshops. A film-only festival pass costs $85 and an all-access pass costs $105.

While the VIMFF programs high-impact environmental content, last year it also established a board-level committee to build a sustainability baseline and set strategic objectives. It has committed to making improvements in areas such as: being more proactive as a community ecological steward with local schools and organizations; procurement; printing; travel and local transportation; waste management; food and beverage selection and service; and venue considerations, such as convenience of location and energy usage. –Continue reading Steve McLean’s Samaritanmag feature here.

I wanted the freedom to go out and live my life.”
