Render: The Vancouver International Music Video Festival is an annual event that showcases the art of the music video and the creativity of the filmmakers. The 4th instalment will take place on November 2 & 3, 2017. This year Render includes the world premiere of the 55 minute film "Agnete & The Merman" (by Cristian Vogel & The Automatic Message) in full 7.1 surround sound, plus the screening of the 2017 Official Selection of international music videos.

Render's 2017 Official Selection Screening \\ Vancity Theatre: November 3, 2017

Render is run by the Vancouver Music Video Society, whose focus is on the convergence between music and film/video. Submissions from independent and commercial filmmakers, emerging or established, are all recognized and encouraged. The 2017 Call for Submissions opened on April 1, 2017 and closed on September 1, 2017. 

We are excited to be co-presenting Render with the Vancity Theatre again this year and are honoured to be presenting Agnete & The Merman as a co-production with the SFU School for the Contemporary Arts.
