WoFF: World of Film International Festival Glasgow

The World of Film Festival, formerly known as Commonwealth Film & Theatre Festival Glasgow is coming back for its second edition October 1-4 2015. In four days full of film screenings, theatre performances, live events, panel discussions and networking receptions WoFF will bring new, more vibrant and youthful vibe to the city’s emerging film and theatre scene. 

WoFF will take place at the cinema of Glasgow’s Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA, 350 Sauchiehall Street). 

This year, the festival comes with a new programme, transforming from a West End festival into a contemporary 4 day event that will gather audiences with various interests and tastes in film and theatre. 

WoFF’s errand is to bring together audiences from Glasgow’s multi-stranded art scene, while at the same time engaging people with powerful background in film and theatre that will bring fresh ideas, filling the gaps in Glasgow’s film and theatre events’ agenda. 

WoFF 2015 will include the following sections: 

First Feature Competition: Will include successful submissions from first feature film directors. 

The Female Perspective (In competition): Showcasing the work of female independent filmmakers. 

Special Screenings (Out of Competition): A selection of films known from the festival circuit. 

Best of MIAFF 2015: Animation programme including the Best of selection of the Montreal International Animation Film Festival (April 16 - 19 2015) 

Commonwealth Film Student Competition: A focus on one country from within the commonwealth, which will showcase submissions from film students, currently enrolled in the major national film schools. Students can submit films as individuals or representing their school. 

Additionally a Theatre Performance, staged and performed by recent graduates of the UoG’s Theatre Department, whose recent work has been selected for the upcoming FRINGE Festival. 
The above will be surrounded by a masterclass from renowned filmmaker / actor or a personality with experience in working for the film industry. This event will be intensively promoted within the Glasgow’s film and theatre students’ communities who will be able to attend with special discounts. 
Finally, workshops and panel discussions (e.g. on the emerging female filmmakers presence in the industry, as combined with the Female Perspective Section of the festival).

Women In Film Foundation



The Women In Film Foundation’s Film Finishing Fund (WIFF FFF) supports films by, for or about women by providing cash grants of up to $15,000 and in-kind services.  Since the inception of the Fund in 1985, the Foundation has awarded more than $2 million in cash and in-kind services to 170 films ensuring that innovative films can be completed and seen by audiences worldwide.  Cash awards range from $1,000 to $15,000, with the number of grants varying from year to year.  In-kind services may be available upon request.

freeheld-oscarAmong the many FFF success stories is OSCAR® winning Short DocumentaryFREEHELD, directed by Cynthia Wade and produced by Vanessa Roth, which was a 2007 grant winner.  Says Wade, "Women In Film came in at a critical point.  The Film Finishing grant was a vote of confidence - it's lonely as an independent filmmaker.  Unless you have the resources, the film is only as effective as the audience you can reach.  I'm grateful to have the understanding that women filmmakers need to be supported."

Film Finishing Fund recipients’ films have won many major awards including Emmy and Academy Awards, and have screened at festivals worldwide including Sundance, Toronto, South by Southwest, LA Film Festival, Vancouver, AFI Fest, Tribeca, San Francisco, Montreal, Berlin, Avignon, Dubai, and Chicago.  They have aired nationally on HBO, PBS (“Frontline” and “POV”), OWN (The Oprah Winfrey Network), Showtime, and internationally on various European, Asian, and Australian television channels.

In order to apply for a FFF grant, a filmmaker must have completed at least 90% of principal photography and a have a rough cut at the time of application.  For specific application requirements, please follow the link and refer to the application.  The program funds filmmakers working in both short and long formats in all genres—narrative, documentary, educational, animated and experimental.  You do not have to be a Women In Film member to apply for the FFF, and we encourage applications from around the world.  Please note that student projects are not eligible to receive Film Finishing Funds.

The FFF is run by experienced industry professionals who have an eye for spotting talent and potential.  For more information, contact the Women In Film Foundation coordinator at
