  • About Us

    'The VanChan Web Series Society' aims to support, motivate and promote the identity & future of Vancouver Cinema.

    How the Festival / Competition works

    Once a month, VanChan screen 10 short webisodes in front of a live audience, who vote on their favourite five webisode shows.

    The five shows with the most votes become the new VanChan primetime shows and are presented as such on the front page of the VanChan.ca website, and each primetime show is invited to make a follow-up episode for VanChan's next screening on the following months.

    BUT these five primetime shows must compete for audience votes against five brand new pilots.

    Ten webisodes enter. Only five may leave. Every month.

    An added benefit of having a primetime series is that primetime directors are invited to participate in the VanChan panel that decides which five new pilots will be shown alongside the five established shows from the previous screening.

    This process continues with new episodes for each primetime show being screened until one or more fail to make the top five in voting at which point the series is “cancelled”.
