The St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival (SJIWFF) is one of the longest running women’s film festivals in the world. Established in 1989 to support and promote women filmmakers, SJIWFF produces several screenings, workshops and other events throughout the year, culminating in a five day film festival held in October in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada. This dynamic event attracts close to 4,000 participants. Every year we receive about 500 film submissions and from those, we present a powerful program of international documentaries, short films and feature works. The 23rd Annual Festival runs October 16-20, 2012.
