Organisers of the International Vegan Film Festival say they will screen 44 films from eight countries, including 12 feature and 32 short vegan-themed films.
The International Vegan Film Festival (IVVF) has announced that viewers will be able to attend the event virtually this year.
IVVF organisers describe the festival as ‘a trailblazing event dedicated to celebrating the vegan ideal: a healthier, more compassionate, environmentally friendly lifestyle that can be achieved through the consumption of plants and animal-free alternatives’.
It is ‘excited to continue offering an online Festival experience to [its] viewers worldwide this year’, with virtual screenings running from November 7-24, following the event’s in-person screening, which took place on November 5 in Ottowa.
IVVF organisers said: “The online virtual Festival will screen 44 films from eight countries and include 12 feature and 32 short vegan-themed films.
“Viewers can purchase an entire Festival pass or individual film blocks (approximately 90 minutes each).”
Among the films on offer are the highly-awaited features Eating Our Way to Extinction and SLAY.
International Vegan Film Festival
The event this year is being hosted by plant-based food brand Wicked Kitchen. In a statement, Wicked Kitchen said it was ‘proud to help promote the International Vegan Film Festival’.
It continued: “We want the stories of those who have worked tirelessly and selflessly in the name of a better planet should be told and also the stories of those that have benefitted.
“Diversity of thought and opinion moves us all forward and providing filmmakers, documentarians, and news-makers the platform to be heard is something are proud to support.
“As the number of people who call themselves vegan grows exponentially around the world, there is a huge appetite for information and insights into all aspects of living a plant-based life: from the ethics of animal farming to the environmental and health benefits that come with a shift to plant-based eating.”
