SWI is excited to host the 2023 Vancouver International Film Festival. The program features some of the best thought-provoking and action-packed, mountain films about climbing, snowsports, biking, the environment and more!
Proceeds from our ticket sales will be supporting Strathcona Wilderness Institute in its mission to inspire awareness, appreciation and stewardship of the natural world through research, education and participation within Strathcona Provincial Park. The Strathcona Wilderness Institute is a non-profit society incorporated in 1995 to promote responsible and enjoyable use of the wilderness areas of Strathcona Provincial Park in central Vancouver Island on the west coast of British Columbia, Canada.
The Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival will help raise funds for SWI to operate two Information Centres in Strathcona Provincial Park: Buttle Hut (at Buttle Lake), and Strathcona Park Wilderness Centre (at Paradise Meadows near Raven Lodge). These Information Centres help inform visitors about Trails & Natural History, leading Interpretive Walks & Hikes, produce Educational Talks & Workshops, create Educational Signs & Interpretive Maps, and SWI offers a TrailRider Program for those with mobility restrictions to enjoy what Strathcona Provincial Park has to offer.
The Information Centres are staffed by volunteers and university summer students through Canada Summer Jobs grants. Additionally, SWI is at the forefront of research and data collection in Strathcona Provincial Park. This includes Floral and Faunal Inventories in the SWI Data Collection Project on iNaturalist, Adventure Science Reports of Wildlife Sightings and supports Current Research Projects (Canada Jay, Vancouver Island Marmots, Lichens, Bryophytes…) and much more.
Everyone who attends will be entered to win DRAW PRISES donated from local business. The draw will take place at the end of intermission.
