"I feel incredibly fortunate to get to practice my craft in this province.  Over the last seven years, the St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival has been instrumental in my development as an artist as well as in the advancement of my career."



Ruth Atkinson, Script Consultant (USA)
"While in St. John’s I’ve given sessions on theme, character, story and plot development, outlining, process, writing short films and pitching. Over the years I have consistently found the St. John’s community to be a truly unique group of filmmakers. Across the board they are talented, creative, supportive, nurturing of each other’s work, and excellent collaborators."



Justin Simms, Filmmaker
"Post production is a vital topic to content creators everywhere, as all projects are dependent on technology and an organized post-production plan. I thought our talk was wide-ranging across many key areas, like video editing, sound recording, and how to approach the post production process in an organized, managed way that will help you be creative."
