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.
At VIWIFF 2018 we are pleased to present a selection of extraordinary films from around the globe. In each of these works, women have filled at least three of the key creative roles, be it writer, director, producer, cinematographer, lead performer, editor or composer.
The festival also supports an International Screenplay Competition and offers a variety of ancillary events for filmmakers as well as the community.
WIFTV is pleased to host the WIDC Career Advancement Module at this year's festival.
