SJIWFF30 • OCTOBER 16-20, 2019



For nearly three decades, our Festival has been showcasing and celebrating women working in the global film, television and interactive industry. The annual five-day Festival presents an innovative program of international documentaries, short films, and feature works every October in St. John’s, Newfoundland & Labrador.


Access exceptional training by industry leaders in an intimate environment, attend filmmaker-focused networking and business development opportunities through our unique programs: Film Industry ForumRBC Michelle Jackson Emerging Filmmaker Award, Scene and Heard and others.


As a non-competitive Festival, we showcase the local film and interactive community nationally and internationally through year-round events and community partnerships, all open to the general public. Our Festival is one of the province’s largest and most anticipated cultural events of the year.
