VISFF Fundraising Gala Nov. 14, 2013

Tickets On Sale Now
Available at Elephant Room, Firehouse Grill, Nanaimo Arts Council and Lucid

We are pleased to announce that the Vancouver Island Short Film Festival’s annual fundraising gala will once again be held at the Firehouse Grill (#7 Victoria Road, Nanaimo), at 7 pm on November 14th. Tickets are $20, which includes appetizers, a drink, and of course the chance to meet some of our brilliant and talented filmmakers! Sold out in previous years, the evening will feature music, a movie trivia contest and a silent auction. In addition, Shayd Johnson of Elephant Room Creative will have a free photo booth set up, so dress as fancy as you feel!

“Funds raised at the November 14 fundraiser at the Firehouse Grill will go towards artist fees for local filmmakers,” said Festival Director Johnny Blakeborough. “We strongly believe in supporting local filmmakers with financial support for their creative ideas. This fundraising party will help us maintain a healthy and active film community on Vancouver Island.” 

The Vancouver Island Short Film Festival is unique in bringing together filmmakers and audiences for the only short film festival on Vancouver Island that focuses on local talent. The ninth annual Festival will take place on February 7 and 8, 2014 at Vancouver Island University’s Malaspina theatre. Tickets for the 2014 VISFF (February 7th & 8th at 7 PM) will go on sale online in November, and will also be available at the show.

The deadline for entry into the VISFF is November 1st, 2013. For more information, visit www.visff.com, email admin@visff.com or call 250-729-3947.
