It's Here! It's Finally Here!


Friday, March 4th to Sunday, March 6th.

Now is the time to pack up your desk, throw on your most comfortable movie-going clothes, and set up a tent outside the VanCity Theatres (take some helpful advice from fans of George Lucas). Tomorrow is the official opening of the 2011 Vancouver Women in Film Festival!

The festival will feature a full weekend of events, feature films, and shorts from some extremely talented filmmakers, producers, and all-around showbiz connoisseurs!

The festival opens with a Digital Media Forum, action-packed with four panels discussion success stories of women working in the new media realm.
Join the conversation from 9:30AM - 5:30PM at the VanCity theatre. Tickets available at the door.

Throughout the festival is an Industry showcase featuring exhibitors from the local industry on display in the Atrium of the VIFC. This event happens on Friday and Saturday and it's completely free! There's no reason not to attend!

Have an idea so marvelous you think the world should know? The Festival will host a Pitching session for just that purpose! On Friday from 2:00PM to 4:00PM at the VanCity Theatre, pitch your project ideas directly to leading film industry professionals! Tickets are on sale at the door.

The Vancouver Women in Film Festivals Opening Gala is, unfortunately, sold out; so, if you have a ticket, you are in for a very exclusive treat! The Opening Gala includes the screening of Black Field ft. Sara Canning of The Vampire Diaries and our Spotlight Awards hosted by the lovely Amanda Tapping!

And of course, you will actually be able to see some films and this film fest!
Some notable screenings include:
Genie-nominated Leave Them Laughing -- Saturday at 9:30PM.
TORA ft. David Suzuki in his first acting role -- Sunday at 1:00PM in the THE ONES WE LOVE | Narrative Short Films series.
Sisters in Arms -- Sunday at 6:00PM screening with A Window Looking In directed by Tara Hungerford.
Amazon Falls ft. Spotlight Award-winning Director Katrin Bowen -- Sunday at 8:00PM

Finally, if you just can't stand the thought of this weekend being over, The Women in Film and Television International (WIFTI) will be host to a very special event on Tuesday, March 8th at Langara College. This Short Film Showcase celebrates the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day!

Have an excellent weekend lads and ladies! bro's and broads! mamas 'n papas!
