Submissions are now open for the 2019 Vancouver International Women in Film Festival (VIWIFF) and the International Screenplay Competition. Now in its 14th year, VIWIFF showcases an impressive line-up of short and feature-length films (narrative, documentary, experimental and animation) by established and emerging women filmmakers from around the world. The festival will be held March 5-10, 2019 and screens films with women in at least three of the following seven key creative roles: Writer, Producer, Director, Cinematographer, Editor, Composer, Lead Performer. Films completed after March 2016 are eligible. International films, as well as films from students, are encouraged and welcomed. Full film submissions guidelines available here.
The Vancouver International Women in Film Festival Screenplay Competition accepts English-language feature screenplays written by women. We encourage you to submit a feature film script of any genre, challenging the perceptions of what stories women write, and what we want to see. Women tell amazing, dynamic, interesting, thought-provoking, affecting, inspiring, funny and down-right exciting stories. We want to read them all!
