St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival

16-Oct-2019 To 20-Oct-2019

St. John's , Canada

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 women filmmakers from around the globe, our year-round operations include film screenings, high-calibre workshops, film conferences, youth-focused filmmaking camps, and career-accelerating mentorship programs. All of this culminates in a five-day international film festival and forum held every October in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. These dynamic events attract over 6,500 annual guests.

Celebrated as the province’s flagship film festival, the annual Festival receives over 400 film submissions annually and from those, they share a powerful program of international documentaries, short films and feature work written and/or directed by women (self-identified). The SJIWFF is a non-competitive, filmmaker-focused festival.

Celebrate 30 years of films made by women, for everyone from October 16-20, 2019.
