VANCOUVER INTERNATIONAL PUPPET FESTIVAL
Vancouver’s best kept secret is that it’s a hotbed of puppetry talent and we invite everyone to come suspend disbelief.
Vancouver's Granville Island exploded with animated characters in October of 2016 in the very first Vancouver International Puppet Festival. This unique event happened over 3 days and nights with performances, workshops, interactive panel discussions, and screenings of the work of local and international puppeteers, puppet builders, and object animators.
In 2018 the Home Grown Series was launched in order to provide local theatre companies and artists to bring new productions to the Vancouver stage.
The Fast & Furriest Puppet Slam Series (mature audiences) happen quarterly through out the year to bring new and veteran puppeteers together to perform short form un-curated puppet acts.
We have held festival fundraiser cabarets such as Fools after Dark, The Heart on Cabaret, and Triple XXXMas Cabaret.
Currently we are working on plans for the next festival.
