St. John's International Women's Film Festival - 2020

Oct 14, 2020 – Oct 18, 2020

The St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival (SJIWFF) is one of the longest running women’s film festivals in the world. Established in 1989 with a bold vision of supporting and promoting the creative work of women in screen-based industries from around the world, the Festival has grown from a single evening of screenings to the province’s flagship film festival. Operating year-round, the SJIWFF is known for a diverse program of independent film screenings, high-calibre workshops and masterclasses, international film forums, hands-on youth filmmaking camps, career-accelerating mentorship programs and of course, advocacy work in the movement for gender equity in our industry.

For SJIWFF31, the majority of this year’s event will be held virtually, from October 14 to the 18. Films will be available to stream online for the duration of the festival across Canada, with some select screenings available only in Atlantic Canada. Live watch parties will be held for the films as well, featuring Q&A sessions with directors and leading talent. Made by women, for everyone, from anywhere!
