Vancouver, a popular filming location and a bustling West Coast seaport, The Vancouver City World Independent Cinema Festival, About WICA Vancouver An annual International Award ceremony created to honor the year's best films, TV Shows, Advertising, Paintings, and Photos. Founded Maggie Anwer to support & promote artists all over the World and to create a venue where aspiring filmmakers & artists can present their work, meet and exchange ideas. We created our virtual cinema theatre to screen the films and to let the audience all over the world watch the films, then we went live for the ceremony in Los Angeles to announce the winners. We want to let independent films reach everyone and be respected like the commercial one, as the first year more than 20,000 viewers watched our program. All the selected films will be screened in our virtual cinema, we have an audience award so our audience will vote online Audience Award Each day After watching the official competition, please vote for the film you liked best. Send us a message to our virtual cinema during the festival. The last day will be live to communicate with filmmakers, artists and attend the ceremony to announce the winners We will always be there, supporting you and your project from before the Festival starts to the closing ceremony. So we won’t be hard to find, or difficult to locate, we know how important it is for Festival organizers to be on hand and to supply that all-important personal touch. How do we know? We know because we already have huge experience in running other Film Festivals and from that, we also know how to make it a better experience for you. With us, it will be. Independent filmmakers and creatives face many challenges; the large competition for viewers’ attention, finding funding, and getting a distributor can only be overcome by the industry coming together and creating opportunities for those who need and deserve it. Our Festival’s aim is to create an opportunity for filmmakers to show their work to the right audience at our intimate and relaxing events and get one step closer to success by receiving recognition for their art. There is ample opportunity to attend networking events, industry professional talk panels, workshops, guest speaker events, film premieres, financing talks, director Q&A's, film screenings and to socialize with like-minded creatives from all walks of life. All of this is neatly wrapped in a week-long showcasing of films where our strong community supports any and every film, from first-time artists to seasoned creators. We are a unique festival that provides a real platform for filmmakers to meet, network, and do business during the festival. . We have many success stories where attending distributors have made offers to the filmmakers, launching them and their work into the marketplace. We have the people and skills in our professional team to make this happen.
