Established in 2020 WIFF Film Fest hosts screenings and an inclusive selection that leaves every audience wanting more. Be a part of this new way of premiering your short film at The WIFF Film Fest 2020.

All competition films will receive a financial email rewarding your film with an equal split of the proceeds for filmmakers. All Official Selection competition films receive equal share of the proceeds from tickets sales set for the filmmakers.

Our goal is to help the filmmakers have as much success through our festival as possible. We feature each filmmaker in our marketing as well as on the days of the festival capturing interviews for future press for the filmmakers. All these little things we feel give filmmakers the best chance to have a successful year premiering their film.

Check out our FilmFreeway Page for more information about the festival. WIFF is in partnership with A Night Of Misfit Film Festival.
