Culture for a Cause!

The Vancouver South African Film Festival presents features and documentaries that explore the culture, history and politics of South Africa – films that entertain and inform. We had a wonderful turnout this year! Thank you for coming to see our films and supporting disadvantaged children in South Africa.

VSAFF is a non-profit event organised entirely by volunteers. All proceeds from the festival go to support Education without Borders.
