Women’s Film Festival

Youth Ambassador


We want to empower, encourage and support youth across Newfoundland & Labrador and make our work accessible to young people who do not live in the greater St. John’s region. To help achieve this, the St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival is proud to announce this year’s Feminist Youth Ambassador - Kaelyn Mercer!

We are honoured and very excited to learn from Kaelyn!


With a legacy of supporting women for 29 years, the Feminist Youth Ambassador program will improve access to the arts for youth beyond the Avalon, prioritize voices of young women, inspire and learn from the next generation of leaders! The Ambassador and their chaperone will receive travel and accommodation support to attend the Festival as VIP guests, with access to all screenings and events including special meet and greets with filmmakers and other perks!

The reach and impact of this program goes beyond the Ambassadors; when young women are extended opportunities to flourish, their friends, families and communities are enriched by extension.

This new program will work towards prioritizing voices of young women with an emphasis on marginalized individuals. Ask us how you can support growing the future of this program.
