Come for the selection of international films, local shorts and features...
Stay for the parties, panel discussions, artist talks and more.
Now in its 12th year, the Vancouver International Women in Film Festival (VIWIFF) showcases an impressive line-up of short, and feature films (narrative, documentary, experimental and animation) by established and emerging women filmmakers from around the world.
Each film screened includes women in at least three of the key creative roles, be it writer, director, producer, cinematographer, lead performer, editor or composer.
As well as featuring films, the festival offers moderated question and answer sessions and panel discussions related to the films, artist talks, networking events, workshops, an awards ceremony, gala and industry events. Details are being added to the WIFTV calendar as they become available.
The Festival is also proud to offer an International Screenplay Competition.
WIFTV is pleased to host the WIDC Career Advancement Module at this year's festival.
We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $153 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country.
