Thanks for your support! 

The Whistler Film Festival Society (WFFS) is a non-profit that was born 17 years ago from love of film. We're inspired by the creative courage of filmmakers. By stories that open our hearts and minds to new ways of seeing and being.  And by being leaders in fostering the next generation of talent.

When the first winter snow blows in to Whistler BC, 14,000+ cinephiles gather in our intimate little mountain Village to be the first to discover films fresh out of the director’s hands.  

The Heart of our Campaign: Growing WFF's Canadian Filmmaker Development & Industry Immersion Programs

WFF’s  mission is to discover, develop and launch Canadian filmmakers, women in film and new cinematic voices.

In addition to screening films, WFF plays a national leadership role in offering script-to-screen development and industry programs for Canadian filmmakers, women in film and emerging talent. We mentor writers, directors, producers, actors and musicians.

WFF Canadian alumni have progressed to make critically acclaimed films and some enjoy international careers. Thanks to these programs and their growing track record, WFF is now recognized as one of North America's preeminent festivals and industry summits. That's because our Village of directors, producers, writers, actors and film fans raise rising star filmmakers.

And it's all happening right here in our little Canadian mountain town!

Our goal is to amplify the impact of Canadian filmmakers on the world.

 

Our dream is to build on what makes us unique and meaningful in the world.

We want to enrich and expand our filmmaker development and industry immersion programs.

Here's our plan: 

  1. Open the programs up to more Canadian creators.
  2. Deepen and diversify the curriculum and its industry connections, which means..
  3. Bringing in more industry mentors and leaders, and....
  4. Extending program duration beyond our 4 festival days to eventually include year round training.

Challenge:  We require external funding to begin developing and expanding these proven programs. This will also cultivate new collaborations and partnerships to assist and synergize with us in their development and growth.

Solution: So, we’re turning to you to join our Village and help take our Canadian filmmakers to the next level.

 

"How can I change the world?" It's a question that we're all asking ourselves in the current age.

We view filmmakers as unsung heroes of catalyzing change.

All change starts in our hearts and minds. Filmmakers shift our hearts and minds in minutes by walking us in the shoes of another. They open our eyes to new perspectives. Through the powerful, ancient art of storytelling, they reveal our world and humanity through a new lens. We're inspired to feel, think and act differently.  That leads to change that makes a difference. Einstein once advised us that we can’t solve current problems using the same thinking that created them.

The world needs new ideas, now more than ever.

We think that it needs more Canadian ideas.

We’re inviting you to help send them out far and wide through the big screen!

 

Thanks to the WFF, Whistler is now an exciting creative crib for nurturing Canada’s filmmakers. We cultivate their ideas and their projects. During our 4-day festival, they learn, create and collaborate with each other. They also connect with industry mentors and deal makers who can take them to the next level. It's all supported by our small town Canadian hospitality, combined with our intimate, relaxed and inquiringly beautiful natural environment.  The personal connections born at WFF make a career difference. Sometimes "the" difference that creates film legacies.

Our Canadian filmmaker programs have 3 core pillars:  

  1. We discover and develop Canadian filmmakers through talent labs & industry learning sessions. We help writers, actors, directors, and producers create their projects & hone their craft.
     
  2. We mentor and connect filmmakers with industry leaders and with each other through industry summits and networking sessions. These help their creative projects be financed, made, and seen around the world.
     
  3. We promote and celebrate their work through festival screenings, artist tributes, and awards. These showcase their their work so you and industry decision makers can discover and love them too.

 

Big Results for Canadian Filmmakers, Women in Film & Emerging Talent!

This year alone, WFF will elevate and celebrate Canadian filmmakers in the following ways:

  • 1 Canada-dedicated Signature Series Tribute recognizing 4 Canadian artists.

    • Screenings: 37% of the films are directed by women
    • Recognition: 2 dedicated awards & 1 keynote festival event (Women on Top)

 

What's at Stake?

Right now, our country is full of great Canadian stories, scripts and filmmakers. They either have the potential or are on the cusp of making a powerful impact on a global scale. 

We know this because we know them!

All they need is that one crack in the door that helps translates their idea into reality. An outstretched hand that guides them to the next step. Or, that links them to the key mentor, industry leader or deal maker who believes in their project and who will help make it happen.

Our development  and industry immersion programs are those guiding hands. But we need yours too.

We’re inviting you to join with us in the incredible journey of discovering, developing and launching our Canadian filmmakers and their ideas into the world.

Your help will lift our development programs to the next level. It will open up new opportunities for our Canadian filmmakers, funding and industry partnerships.
