Killing Candi

Director: Julie Ufema.
Like it or not, Candies parole officer says the reality star has a PSA to shoot. And although she’ll do just about anything for fame, the little people she continues to step on are even more willing to do anything to take it all away. What could be sweeter than killing Candi?

Eversouls: The Collector and Sage

Director: Julie Ufema.
Serena and Anna grew up together in the same orphanage, dreaming of one day being adopted into the same family, so when Mr. and Mrs. Eversoul take them in they all believe that their prayers have been answered. But the dream quickly turns into a nightmare when they realize that being a family comes with an unimaginable responsibility passed down over the centuries. Guided by the family sage and a misunderstood ‘Collector’, Serena and Anna navigate through a maze of lost souls. These souls have a price to pay someone, or something, to free them selves and find eternal peace. Serena and Anna must find the strength and power to help free these souls or find themselves paying an even bigger price.

Caveat

Director: Julie Ufema.
After hearing of their father's mysterious death, the five privileged Mosier sisters are forced to return home to claim their share of the family inheritance. With an ironclad will, Charles Mosier, the Patriarch of the family, grants his heirs the fortune necessary to protect their financial future. But after losing her identity as her father's keeper, oldest daughter Kathryn seizes the opportunity to unleash decades of pent up hostility and resentment. But Kathryn isn't the only one with something to prove. Each member of the family has a price to pay, and as the weekend unfolds, they find it can't be paid in cash.

Vancouver Women in Film Festival (VWIFF)

7th Annual Vancouver Women in Film Festival (VWIFF 2012)

March 8-11, 2012 in Vancouver, BC Canada 

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,
or *new this year* you may submit using WITHOUTABOX.


Here's what filmmakers have to say: "Our film screened at VWIFF in 2011, and it was an absolutely amazing experience! The energy and support was infectious. We are looking forward to submitting our next project for next year's festival."

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.

Read more about the Legacy Awards (three cash prizes totalling $1200), the Women In the Director's Chair Feature Film Award (representing industry leadership and support from some of the most significant companies in western Canada and valued at nearly $120,000), and our annual Spotlight Awards and Gala.
