The WIFT-T Fundraising Reception@TIFF is a FREE event for all current* WIFT-T 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.
Funds raised through the Silent Auction and WIFT Stars campaign support the work of the Foundation for WIFT-T.
*You must be a member as of August 6, 2019 to receive an invitation to the 2019 WIFT-T Fundraising Reception@TIFF.
Your kind and generous donations enable WIFT-T 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-T 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!

“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-T’s help is needed as much as ever.”
