Director: Eric GUERET.
Looking at the cases of France, Germany, the United States and Russia, this scientific and political report explores the taboo subject of nuclear power, particularly the darkest aspects of the latter. Nuclear power is not without risks, its Achilles heel being nuclear waste.People are afraid of it, scientists cannot find an acceptable solution to the problem, industry companies are trying to reassure us and politicians avoid talking about it altogether. But what do we really know about nuclear waste ? How can people have a clear vision of something that has always been shrouded in secrecy ? In seeking “the truth about waste”, this film aims to provide, for the very first time, the keys to understanding the choices which weigh heavily on the future of humanity.


Director: Marie-Monique ROBIN.
Since its beginnings in 1901, the Monsanto empire has been built upon on the manufacture of chemical products that have ended up being banned from the market. Every time, the multinational has lied, hidden or doctored studies that demonstrate the harmfulness of its products. It has had proceedings brought against it and been ordered to pay hefty fines, but that has not stopped its irresistible ascension. Today, it is the world leader in GMO production.  The transgenic seeds it markets are resistant to the powerful herbicide, Roundup, its landmark product for twenty years. An investigation into the Saint Louis “giant” and the recent developments it has made in biotechnology and seed control.

Mère-Bi, La Mère / Mother

Director: Ousmane william MBAYE.
Senegal’s first journalist, now 82 rainy seasons old, Annette Mbaye d’Erneville has been very early, concerned by the development of her country . Militant from the first hours of the woman's emancipation cause, she has been a pioneer activist and anti-conformist. "Capturing a generation of pioneers who are our mothers, capturing my mother!" Born in Sokone in 1926 as a child of the colonial period, she is "torn "by her education “vieille France" and her love for her country of origin and Serer tradition. During her university education in Paris in 1947, she immersed herself in the intellectual circles of the 50s and met those who built the independence throughout Africa. There, she founded a family, recorded her firsts radio programs, got a journalism diploma. In 1957, she returned to Senegal to serve her country. ! The Senegalese writer, Boubacar Boris Diop, described Annette d’Erneville, as follows: "It is that having lived our century as a true communication woman, a lot of other destinies encountered hers . . . her memory is still sharp and when we listen to her, it is so surprising to hear her recount so many famous historic characters or unknown people and most of all, from so many different generations."


Director: Lucienne Lanaz.

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.
