From the press release:

Women In Film and Television Vancouver’s (WIFTV) From Our Dark Side genre concept competition and accelerator program is delighted to announce the winners of its third season.

The competition received over 150 entries from across the country, thanks to the promotional efforts of dozens of film schools, agencies, festivals, genre groups, and the broader film community.

“The quality of submissions was outstanding,” commented jury member Rupert Harvey. “I’ve been inspired by the amazing wealth of talent from across the country.”

The five From Our Dark Side winners participate in an accelerator program designed to take their project to the next stage of development. Winners participate in one-on-one sessions, group meetings and workshops at the Vancouver International Women in Film Festival (March 8-12) and the Frontičres Genre Co-Production Market in Montreal in July. They meet potential producers and buyers to receive feedback on their projects.

The five winners were presented with their awards Sunday, March 13, 2017 at 7 PM during the Vancouver International Women in Film Festival Closing Night Event (#VIWIFF).
