Vancouver International Women in Film Festival (#VIWIFF)
The 2019 festival will run from March 5 - 10, 2019 at the VIFF Vancity Theatre.
VIWIFF is organized by Women in Film and Television Vancouver (WIFTV), a not-for-profit society with a mandate to celebrate and advance the artistic development and careers of women working in screen-based media. We are at the forefront of the gender parity movement in the screen-based media industry and initiate and participate in national advocacy efforts. We offer a variety of programming designed to increase the participation of women in key creative roles in the production of screen-based media.
To be eligible for VIWIFF 2019 each of these works has women filling at least three of the key creative roles, be it writer, director, producer, cinematographer, lead performer, editor or composer. Click here for the 2019 film submission guidelines.
The festival also supports an International Screenplay Competition and offers a variety of ancillary events for filmmakers as well as the community. Click here for the 2019 International Screenplay Competition submission guidelines.
