About

The Chilliwack Independent Film Festival is a two day event with screenings and Q & As designed to provide opportunities for both local and international filmmakers to showcase their work and build contacts for future collaborations.

With events and mixers as well as over ten awards across different categories, we hope to to build ties between emerging and established professionals. We want to provide an arena for filmmakers to screen their films in public and experience some incredible cinema from across the world.

We accept Features, Shorts, Documentaries, Music Videos and Animation from emerging artists and students to establish professionals. The Chilliwack Independent Film Festival (CIFF) is committed to the celebration of independent film and bringing it to wider audiences.

We encourage films from across Canada and the globe to enter and attend. We also have special focus on local BC filmmakers with specific categories. If you have a powerful story with a distinct voice, we want to watch it.

The Chilliwack Independent Film Festival runs every year in November at the Cottonwood Cinema in Chilliwack.
