About the Festival

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

 The Cowichan Valley Film Society brings the Travelling World Community Film Festival to the VIU Cowichan Campus in early November each year.

Thought-provoking documentaries on local & global issues

The Festival has run successfully in Courtenay, BC since 1990. The annual collection of documentary films now travels to many communities across Canada. The films focus on environmental and social justice issues around the globe and cover a wide range of topics.  They are sure to educate, entertain and inspire. 

The Festival takes place at the beautiful VIU Cowichan Campus, screening films in the state of the art lecture theatre.  We prepare and serve local organic savoury and sweet items, fruit and beverages.

We also run an opening night fundraiser each year with a film screening, wine and food items together with facilitated discussion after the film.
