      Returning for its 14th year at the VIFF Centre, the Vancouver Short Film Festival (VSFF) has unveiled its 2024 lineup.

      This year, the festival is presenting a diverse selection of 46 films from across Canada, promising a unique and exciting viewing experience with in-person screenings as well as online access. The lineup includes a variety of genres, from animation to sci-fi, and even features the return of the After Dark programming block, with eight horror and thriller shorts from BC.

      Titles include I Can’t Go On, about a girl who finds a body in an elevator; Motherland, which confronts issues of identity and family during the 1979 Iran hostage crisis; and Threads, an animated clay film about a seamstress who battles with a parasite.

      “Canadian filmmakers continue to impress us! After receiving a record-breaking number of submissions, we are so grateful and honoured to showcase some of BC and Canada’s best short films,” VSFF’s festival co-directors, Merena Dix and Duncan Carr, share in a joint statement. “This year’s program is thought-provoking, bold, and funny, with a couple of twists. Emerging and established filmmakers from coast to coast have brought you their best, and viewers are in for a treat.”
