The Italian Film Festival’s mandate is to raise awareness and promote all aspects of Italian cinema. The festival, a collaboration involving Il Centro Italian Cultural Centre, the Consulate General of Italy in Vancouver, and the Vancouver International Film Festival, blends contemporary and classic films from Italy’s significant cinematic repertoire to create a unique festival experience. Contemporary films from the past two to three years are merged with Italy’s rich patrimony of classic avant-garde, and neo realism cinema, and presented to the public every January during a one-week run at the VanCity Cinema located at 1181 Seymour Street in Vancouver. While the marquee for the Italian Film Festival is our January event, IFF will also present and host a series of film presentations over the calendar year.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
