The Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival (VIMFF) is a Vancouver tradition, screening dozens of films each November and February. For the first time, VIMFF’s Fall Series is an online event, streaming from November 20th to 29th. It includes over 20 films and live presentations about rock climbing, skiing, and outdoor adventures spread across five shows.

You can buy passes for each individual show, but the best deal is to buy a Fall Series Pass that gives you access to all five shows. Since the festival is all online, you can watch the films at any time between November 20th and 29th. So get the popcorn ready, settle into the couch, and enjoy the film festival from home. Here’s a run-down of what to expect at each show.
