Known for its intimate, accessible atmosphere, the female-centric festival is seeing growing interest from distributors, with attendance from A71 Entertainment Indiecan Entertainment, Hollywood Suite, VICE Canada, and United Front Entertainment. In addition to social events and post-film Q&As, the festival includes a filmmaker discussion panel, a script development program, and a pitch session open to the public. Among films picked up for distribution were Valerie Buhagiar’s It’s Hard to be Human (Juniper Island Productions). While a competitive international women director’s film festival since 2001, the festival is inclusive for men, with its script development program open to all.
