About Us

Women In Film and Television Vancouver (WIFTV) is a member-based organization committed to creating an equitable screen-based industry for women and gender diverse people.

By addressing systemic barriers we believe we are also working towards more inclusive, representative media.

We approach our mission by:

  • Advocating and organizing for equity in funding, employment, and promotional opportunities for all women and gender diverse people in the film and TV industry
  • Providing low-barrier, accessible programming, including mentorship and educational events to increase women and gender diverse participation in screen based media
  • Producing the annual Vancouver International Women in Film Festival that champions women and gender diverse creators

Women (trans and cisgender), Two Spirit, non-binary and gender diverse people are welcome to become members of WIFTV. Men are encouraged to join as allies.

WIFTV incorporated in 1989 as a not-for-profit society registered in British Columbia. Our offices are located on the unceded traditional and ancestral homelands of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.
