Global Visions Film Festival is Canada’s oldest documentary film festival. It operates from the knowledge that the world is getting smaller, and that all people are interconnected, interdependent citizens of the global village. The Global Visions Film Festival (GVFF) is a festival that celebrates the work of passionate, accomplished documentarians from Canada and around the world, the passion of film and the diversity, joy, and responsibility of being a global citizen.
Global Visions Film Festival projects films with state of the art technology in multiple established cinemas that hold from 250 to 650, and it frequently follows screenings with discussions featuring filmmakers, or leading academics drawn from the University of Alberta, Canada’s second largest university. It accepts documentary films made within the last two years, with exceptions at the discretion of the festival jury. Films may be of any length; it programs shorter films with feature productions and often combines two mid length films into a single thematic program.
GVFF hegan as the Edmonton Learners Centre's Third World Film Festival. The centre became a non-profit society,The Global Visions Festival Society, in 1998. Over the years nearly 80,000 people have taken part in the Festival. In addition to dozens of films GVFF presents public workshops and panel discussions with filmmakers, as well as its popular Youth Media Arts Day for young filmmakers. In 2009 it began a partnership with Hot Docs, North America’s largest and most prestigious documentary film festival, to present the acclaimed film series Doc Soup.
