Women in Film & Television International (WIFTI)
2018 Short Film Showcase and International Women’s Day

Women in Film & Television International (WIFTI) is getting ready for the 2018 Short Film Showcase and International Women’s Day.  Each WIFTI Chapter can host their own Short Film Showcase on or around March 8th, International Women’s Day.  The celebration this year marks the 13th Anniversary of the WIFTI Short Film Showcase. 

International Women’s Day is an occasion when women on all continents, often divided by national boundaries and by ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic and political differences, come together to celebrate their day.  It is a time when women can look back to a tradition that represents years of struggle for equality, justice, peace and development.

This date is also commemorated at the United Nations and is designated in many countries as a national holiday.  While International Women’s Day is the story of ordinary women as makers of history, it is rooted in the centuries-old struggle of women to participate in society on an equal footing with men.  The idea of an International Women’s Day first arose at the turn of the twentieth century, which in the industrialized world was a period of expansion and turbulence, booming population growth and racial ideologies.  Women’s suffrage and calls for peace were the initial reasons behind the declaration of International Women’s Day.

The WIFTI Short Film Showcase is a powerful demonstration of our members’ creativity, vision, and artistry.  Founded in 2004, the WIFTI Short Film Showcase presents selected films from Women in Film & Television Chapters around the world.  Some recent Showcase films have been nominated for Academy Awards, received distribution deals and garnered recognition globally.  WIFTI encourages unique points of view and storytelling that focuses on subjects/issues that concern women.  The Showcase is exclusively for WIFTI Chapter Members
