Opening Night at San Francisco International Animation Festival

#
Last night's 'Glitch' was wonderful-the animation by Eric Leiser, and music by his brother Jeff, were both superb, and Jay Masonek gave a poignant and very expressive performance as himself! Truly was glad I made it to the opening night to see this stunner-the animation really was spectacular! The film was unusual as far as having a kind of flowing structure- the best way I can describe it is as a somewhat dream-like collage of symbolic images, natural beauty, and a yearning for more innocent ...

"Opus" Opens Shriekfest Los Angeles

user
I'm unfamiliar with the genre of "horror." I loved "Scream," and "I Know what you did Last Summer," in high-school when they came out, but somewhere along the way my interest piqued and hasn't come back again. I don't know, I like happy things. So last night I was excited to see inside an unfamiliar world at the Shriekfest opening night party. I talked to filmmakers about their work, horror as a genre, and the state of indie filmmaking. My wingman Cubby and I or...

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.
