Don’t miss Vancouver Island’s largest celebration of film!

Bringing film to life” for the 19th year, the Victoria Film Festival (VFF) is a 10-day movie extravaganza in Downtown Victoria featuring everything from short films by local youth to Canadian feature films, international documentaries, and everything in between.

Usually, we wouldn’t ask you to kiss and tell…

But how about a little show and tell?

It’s that time of the year again; it's the 4th annual Kiss in the City Contest in Downtown Victoria, when we we ask Victorians to show us their love for the city... and for each other!

Valentine’s Day is less than a month away and the DVBA has a great way for you to win one of three romantic evenings in Downtown Victoria to celebrate love with your someone special. Grab your sweetheart and a digital camera, pick your favourite romantic spot in downtown Victoria and capture your kiss. That's all!
