St. John's International Women's Film Festival - 2023

Oct 17, 2023 – Oct 21, 2023

St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival is Canada’s longest-running women’s film festival. It was launched in 1989 in response to this phenomenon with a bold vision of supporting and promoting women’s creative work in screen-based industries locally and internationally.

Their mission is to create an equitable screen-based industry by increasing awareness of women’s contributions to the sector and providing platforms for them to expand their craft through exhibition, opportunity, creation, and education. By fostering women and gender-diverse filmmakers’ development and advancement, there can be more representation in front of and behind the camera.

SJIWFF has grown in both submissions and accolades for over three decades. A respected leader in the Canadian film circuit and movement for gender equity in the industry, SJIWFF brings critical artist development and creative vitality to Newfoundland and Labrador.
