2018 VSAFF People’s Choice Awards

VSAFF is pleased to announce this year’s winners of the People’s Choice Awards as voted by our festival attendees. Congratulations to the filmmakers!

Best Feature FilmBeyond the River

Two men – one trapped in township poverty and just one step ahead of the law, the other a nine-time gold medalist desperately running from a past that continues to haunt him – team up to challenge the river in the Dusi Canoe Marathon and redeem themselves.


Best Documentary FilmLiyana

A group of orphans who have faced enormous challenges in their own lives create a fictional character – Liyana – and set her on an heroic quest. She is a resilient girl whose trials, tribulations and delights mirror their own.


An enormous thank you our festival co-presenter SFU Woodward’s, all the attendees, volunteers, community partners and sponsors – we couldn’t have pulled the festival off without your ongoing support! If you have questions or comments about the films or VSAFF, please feel free to email us.
