BLACK MARKET 2023
VIBFF 23 Black Market - FREE IN-PERSON and ONLINE! An industry series where both locally and internationally renowned industry professionals, experts, thought leaders, visionaries and like-minded people, will share an exciting blend of cutting-edge thinking and real-world experience on today’s most critical filmmaking issues. We hope to foster future collaborations, maximize cross-border artistic exchanges and promote entrepreneurship in the field of filmmaking. During this In-Person and Online series, the workings of the film industry will be the subject of discussions and exchanges while aiming to confront ideas and facilitate knowledge acquisition. The VIBFF wants to give professionals and young aspiring professionals opportunities to enrich their visions, establish career paths, networking opportunities, and acquire valuable tools through various specialized discussions, especially in a context where diversity is lacking on screens and behind the scenes across British Columbia. As part of our dynamic festival, VIBFF steps outside of the entertainment industry. Join us for community panel discussions to dissect important societal issues affecting our Black communities. These discussions create capacity building in the communities, foster greater understanding, raise awareness and create opportunities for sharing and networking.
