VANCOUVER INTERNATIONAL WOMEN IN FILM FESTIVAL

March 8 - 13, 2022 

SUBMISSIONS ARE OPEN!

 

Now in its 17th year, the Vancouver International Women in Film Festival (VIWFF) showcases an impressive line-up of short, mid-length and feature-length films (narrative, documentary, experimental and animation) by established and emerging women filmmakers from around the world.

“Women” includes all those who identify as a woman.

VIWIFF provides a platform for challenging gender imbalance and the lack of diversity in the screen-based media industry through a combination of film screenings, discussions, and professional development opportunities. The festival also offers artist talks, networking events, an awards ceremony and an International Screenplay Competition. 

Visit the VIWFF 2021 pages HERE.

The mission of the festival is to:

  • create opportunities for audiences to engage in the work of women filmmakers;
  • create opportunities for women filmmakers to interact with their audiences;
  • create opportunities for the local, national and international filmmaking community, including audiences, industry representatives and media, to focus critically on the accomplishments of women in the filmmaking industry;
  • showcase and celebrate the diversity of women working in screen based media.

Submissions to VIWFF 2022 are now open via FilmFreeway.
