The 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.
We are seeking reliable and enthusiastic volunteers to assist with setup, execution and tear-down for WIFT-T's Reception@TIFF! This is a great opportunity for students and industry professionals looking to get experience in a creative atmosphere and be a part of a team that values and supports the arts. Shifts will be scheduled in increments so that volunteers may attend the reception.

“The Deluxe Toronto Postproduction Mentorship was a fantastic place to be because I got the opportunity to see the step-by-step postproduction process of a variety of projects, from indie shorts to well-known television series and features. I am so thankful to have gotten the opportunity to be mentored through Deluxe by such a welcoming, helpful, talented, and friendly team. I am so excited to take all of these useful new things I’ve learned about the postproduction process and apply it to my own career! Thank you WIFT-T and Deluxe!”
