Each year since 2006, the Vancouver Women in Film Festival (VWIFF) has showcased an impressive line-up of short and feature films (narrative, documentary and animation) by established and emerging women filmmakers from around the world. The Festival is presented by Women in Film and Television Vancouver and is one of our key annual celebration events. In addition to offering independent filmmakers a professional screening opportunity, the festival also serves to build audiences and appreciation for relevant cinema by women.
“There was such a breadth of vision, expression and storytelling in the submissions we received last year, I’m very excited to see what we’ll be presenting to our audiences in 2012,” says Festival Artistic Director, Roslyn Muir.
All films screened at our festival have women in at least three of the key creative roles (one woman may serve in more than one role): Writer, Producer, Director, D.O.P., Lead Actor, or Lead Animator / Editor. We encourage submissions featuring strong female characters and stories. All independent filmmakers (women and men) whose films were completed after January 1, 2010 are invited to submit.
You may submit your film through our website,

The Vancouver Women in Film Festival celebrates these wonderful filmmakers with artists' fees as well as cash and in-kind awards through the generous support of Legacy Filmworks, Women In the Director’s Chair (Creative Women Workshops Association), Kodak Canada, and a variety of other sponsors.

The Warrambeen Film Festival is a new event developed in response to an identified need to preserve regional stories and history whilst also filling a gap in family friendly arts events on the rural calendar. The festival is a daylong event occurring on the 13th of March 2010 which will incorporate a competitive short film screening, live music and acts as well as a food and wine festival component showcasing the produce of the region. Warrambeen is 1.5hrs west of Melbourne between Geelong, Ballarat and Colac.
The motivation behind this event has always been about reinvesting into the community financially and artistically while preserving its history and engaging new audiences. With the eventual and inevitable loss of word of mouth story telling we believe that film, and especially the short film format, can bridge that gap which has formed and preserve our colourful stories and histories by committing them to film.
With the central theme of regional stories for regional audiences, the festival will select films to be screened with this core idea in mind, although all films will be considered and judged on merit. Furthermore, each year, the festival produces a ‘headline film’ concerning some facet of the immediate regions history, stories, or even based on a good yarn synonymous with the area.
Some fantasic prizes to be announced very soon!
Check out www.warrambeenfilmfestival.com.au and follow the links to submit your films while the early bird offer is still available.

It is said that a “Picture speaks a thousand words” but when it comes to films it can actually translate into an epic. The strength & reach of a motion picture has always defined new benchmarks & more often than not managed to make an indeligible mark on the minds of the audience. This phenomenon gains ground more so with respect to issues pertaining to environmental degradation & nature conservation.
Discussions & forums on environmental conservation though critical, have lost their potency & often end-up as drab & cliched to a great extent. Thus when spreading the message of nature conservation remains vital, spreading it effectively becomes the cornerstone of this grave issue.
Ecofest’09 aims to get some of the best creative minds in the business for spreading the message to the utmost extent.The idea behind inviting & screening these creatively crafted films is to make a strong impact upon the audience, which is the first step towards urging them towards concrete action.

Since 2007 the LIDF has worked to ensure that London is host to exciting, diverse, challenging and inspiring films from every corner of the world. The LIDF is committed to providing a platform for international documentaries and their directors. It does this by working with globally recognised partners and venues, such as the British Museum, the Barbican Centre, and the Royal Society of the Arts on a year-round programme of screenings and other events that includes the 10-day London International Documentary Festival.
The LIDF’s ongoing commitment to what it calls ‘Conversations in Film’ creates a unique kind of film festival. The films within LIDF are the starting point for a series of programmed ‘conversations’ – panel discussions and workshops – that bring diverse audiences together to go beyond the films themselves in order to engage with social, cultural and political issues in the company of policy makers, academics, journalists and other cultural commentators
Having celebrated its third year the LIDF is now looking forward to working with new partners and presenting another feast of film and debate in April / May 2010.
