WIFF is a celebration of Indigenous and diverse storytelling through film. The festival brings together industry veterans, new and emerging independent filmmakers, and everyone in between for a film festival that is entirely experienced online.
Our next year's dates are set! WIFF will be taking place on July 9th to 11th, 2021 on Manitoulin Island. For 2021 we are planning an in person AND an online experience.
Our Call for Submissions for our 2021 festival is now open!
“Weengushk International Film Festival is one of those festivals which actually does what it sets out to do. It reaches out to an Indigenous audience and to local communities and brings talented filmmakers, producers and professionals together from around the world to engage with the audience and the community.
It is quite impressive. What WIFF does is special and stands out amongst all the other festivals. It is a pleasure to work with and support the festival.”
