About WIFT Vancouver

WIFTV (formerly Women in Film and Television Vancouver) is a member-based organization committed to creating gender equity in film and television. WIFTV incorporated in 1989 as a not-for-profit society registered in British Columbia. By addressing systemic barriers, we believe we are also working towards more inclusive, representative media.
