Vancouver International Women in Film Festival (#VIWIFF)

March 5 - 10, 2019 at the VIFF Vancity Theatre in Vancouver, BC.


VIWIFF showcases films created by women.

It is a centre of critical discourse for contemporary women’s cinema and a celebration of the accomplishments of women filmmakers. Films screened at the festival represent a wide range of genres and lengths and capture a diversity of characters, themes and topics.

The festival is organized by Women In Film and Television Vancouver (WIFTV), a member-driven, not-for-profit, society which addresses systemic barriers to women’s equal participation in the production and dissemination of screen-based media.

As well as film screenings, the festival offers a variety of ancillary programming including workshops, pitch sessions, panel discussions, artist talks, receptions, an awards ceremony and more.

VIWIFF also organizes an international screenplay competition

Details and ticket information will be available in February 2019. In the meantime, check out the VIWIFF archives.


Film submissions are now closed. Thanks to all those who have submitted their work.
