Joining WIFTV is joining a movement for gender equityin front of and behind the camera in screen-based media. Your membership fees make WIFTV possible. They support our advocacy initiatives, our programming, our events and our festival.

Anybody who is equity-deserving on the basis of gender is welcome to become a voting member of WIFTV. This includes, but is not limited to, trans, non-binary, Two-Spirit, Indigiqueer people, and cis women.

Cis men are encouraged to join as non-voting members.

We recognise that the English language as a colonial language does not capture the breadth and scope of all gender identities. We encourage folks to use their best judgement when deciding which membership to choose. We also recognise that not everybody who is equity-deserving on the basis of gender will feel comfortable being voting members of an organisation with 'women' in the name. We are in the process of a name change to address this.

We encourage representation from all the creative, technical, administrative, and service fields that sustain our lively screen-based media indutry and community.
