MISSION & OBJECTIVE

The East Van Showcase has grown each year. What began as the local East Vancouver community coming together to share their works has evolved into a weekend mixed media extravaganza. Day One is at the famous Rickshaw Theatre. Day Two is at the iconic Rio Theatre, both complete with red carpet, host and memorable awards ceremonies.

The most important thing to us though, is finding these hidden gem films. Finding these up and coming directors who can have their moment and use the Showcase as a stepping stone to the world's top festivals.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

Every screening director who attends the Showcase gets taken care of. Expect a goodie bag package complete with an assortment of benefits and prizes from our sponsors and partners- Jameson Whiskey, Stormcrow Tavern, Black Dog Video, Havana Restaurant, Raindance Vancouver, Boo La La Costumes, and Sons of Vancouver Distillery among others.

Then, of course, we also have awards.

Best International Short Film.
Best Local Short Film.
Best Acting Performance.
Best Cinematography.

Each award comes with a beautiful handcrafted trophy by Divaukas Design. In addition each award will be accompanied by a fitting prize.
