The WIFT Toronto Fundraising Reception@TIFF is a FREE event for all current* WIFT Toronto members. This popular networking event and fundraiser held annually during TIFF brings together our community of members, partners, visiting filmmakers and special guests for a special catered event honouring the contributions of Canadian women in the entertainment industry.
Your kind and generous donations enable WIFT Toronto to continue its 35 year legacy of empowering women in Canada’s screen-based media industry, and amplifying their voices and talents. Funds raised through the silent auction and other initiatives help subsidize our custom-tailored entrepreneurial and leadership development programs, and offers bursaries and scholarships to increase women’s access to career-advancing opportunities.
Proceeds enable WIFT Toronto to build on its 35-year legacy of supporting women's career development; increasing women's access to leadership and mentorship opportunities; and providing a platform for women's contributions to Canada's vibrant screen-based media industry to be recognized and celebrated. Together, we can FUEL THE CHANGE!
For every donation you make through the WIFT Stars campaign, you will be entered into a draw to win a 1-year WIFT Toronto membership, or the GRAND PRIZE of a 2-night stay at the Fairmont Le Château Montebello! ENTER NOW!
“I’ve seen astonishing changes in the role of women in my career. The strength and talent of women in the industry is unprecedented. But there are still hills to climb, and WIFT Toronto’s help is needed as much as ever.”
