VAUGHAN FILM FESTIVAL

The Vaughan Film Festival is a special event showcasing international short films and art forms of all genres. Our mandate is to create a platform for creative artists and film makers to help inspire so they can have the opportunity to let their talent shine. The festival consists of one day of screenings, as well as a gala dinner, The Grand Social, the following evening to celebrate and award our artists on their work. The Vaughan Film Festival is rapidly expanding and is embraced with contacts in the film industry.
The Vaughan Film Festival is receiving submissions from all over the world. Genres such as Drama, Comedy, Suspense, Action, Horror, Animation, and Documentary will be screened at Cineplex Colossus Theatres. The Grand Social is the awards ceremony for VFF. As guests enter this elegant atmosphere, they will walk the red carpet and feast their eyes on an incredible art exhibit from local and international artists (once upon a design, wendy CHO). Attendees will then be seated with a full course meal where they will enjoy the VFF awards presentation, as well as a number of performances from sing-ers and dancers. Festival directors also present a scholarship to two lucky students, assisting in their post-secondary education in the arts.
