Only Known Vegan Film Festival in the World
The International Vegan Film Festival is an annual event that was first launched on October 14, 2018, as the only known vegan film festival in the world. The event showcases the talents of mission-driven filmmakers, celebrates the vegan lifestyle, and inspires non-vegans to transition to a plant-based diet by highlighting the effects it has on their bodies, the planet, and animals.
31 Vegan-Themed Films Available for Online Streaming
Just like last year, the 2021 International Vegan Film Festival will take place virtually, with over 31 vegan-themed films available for online streaming. While the films are related by the common denominator of veganism, they vary in length, genre, and country of origin. The different categories range from animal rights, food choices, and ethics to sustainability and climate change. A few films in this year’s lineup include Moving Animals, which is about Jo-Anne McArthur’s documentation of the long-distance transport of animals, The Dark Hobby, which zooms in on a group of Native Hawaiians and conservationists working to protect exotic fish being taken from reefs, and The Story of Two Vegan Bodybuilders, which takes a closer look at the lives of plant-based bodybuilders Robert Cheeke and Vanessa Espinoza.
The festival will take place from October 30 through November 7. There are two different ticket types. First is the Individual Program Block ticket for $16.95 CAD that allows viewers to watch one program block, which is about 90 minutes of films. Second is the All-Access Festival Pass for $42.50 CAD per household that allows viewers to watch each film two times. For both ticket options, the content can be streamed at the viewer’s leisure anywhere in the world during the festival dates.
