Mountain Film Fest returns to Hope

The Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival (VIMFF) will be featuring six films spanning mountain sports, culture and environment

The Vancouver International Film Fest (VIMFF) is returning to the Hope Cinema on Mar. 3 to raise funds for Hope Mountain Centre.

The Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival (VIMFF) is returning to the Hope Cinema on Thursday, Mar. 3.

Blue Moose Coffee House and Hope Mountain Centre are once again hosting the popular event, and moviegoers will be treated to the “best of the fest” spanning mountain sports, culture and environment.

At least six films from around the world will be featured.

The event raises money for Hope Mountain Centre, helping our non-profit society offer more free outdoor programs, maintain trails, and support conservation projects.

VIMFF typically sells out the Hope Cinema and the majority of the audience is local, so it’s great to see that level of support coming from the Hope community.

One of the things I enjoy most about VIMFF each year, is the way it brings Hope’s outdoor community together, celebrating our own style of mountain culture.

Local outdoor companies set up displays, donate door prizes, and have products on sale. There’s a festive atmosphere in the room, with 320 people laughing and conversing as they check out the vendors.

Raffle tickets are on sale again this year, and prizes will be announced at intermission including a weekend at Manning Park Resort, snowshoes, and a high-performance sleeping bag.

On behalf of Hope Mountain Centre, our board of directors, and our passionate team of volunteers I invite you to join in the fun at VIMFF!

Hope Cinema doors open at 6 p.m. and the films start at 7 p.m.

It’s best to buy tickets in advance at the Blue Moose, Pharmasave, or on line via www.hopemountain.org.
