ABOUT SIFF

WE ARE BRINGING THE EYES OF THE FILM WORLD TO SQUAMISH, BC.

SIFF is a non-profit organization uniting talented storytellers and visionaries with audiences seeking fresh concepts and new perspectives. 

With the 2021 film submissions now closed, SIFF is creating a community of filmmakers sharing their craft with the world.

A FILM FESTIVAL IN THE HEART OF THE PACIFIC COASTAL MOUNTAIN RANGE.

Showcasing both Canadian and International talent, SIFF celebrates the art of filmmaking and awards the creators behind the scenes. Our festival is an all-ages event with categories directed to independent films and the unseen stories they've shared. 

We want to encourage the younger generation to get involved in the industry and celebrating their fledgling art and talents.

All profits from the festival go back into the Sea-to-Sky art programs, focusing on nurturing the film passion within our youth. SIFF will celebrate the industry with special events and premiers, interviews and podcasts from people in the industry,   and a virtual festival connecting film lovers globally.  

We are committed to creating a green and sustainable festival for film lovers to enjoy for generations to come. 



SIFF humbly acknowledge that we host our events on the traditional territory of the Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nations of the Coast Salish peoples.
