Deadline Extended for The Future is Female* Mentorship Program


The Gimli Film Festival has extended the deadline to Monday, June 25 for The Future is Female*, a brand new mentorship program aimed at involving more women-identified folx in the Gimli Film Festival and the greater filmmaking community. The program takes place on Friday, July 27 in conjunction with the 18th annual Gimli Film Festival.As part of this program, GFF will provide up to 45 applicants with free transportation to the festival via charter bus for a full day of inspiring and educational woman-driven film programming. This includes woman-directed film screenings, Q&As with out-of-town filmmakers, a workshop about producing your own films, a panel hosted by Women in View, a networking reception and more!  If you are a woman-identifying person, we invite you to please apply today!

This exciting new program has been made possible through support from Women in View, On Screen Manitoba and Vital Transit, in addition to the hard work of GFF’s staff and board members.

*This program is of course meant to be inclusive, and as such the asterisk here is meant to represent any non-binary woman-identified folks. All woman-identified individuals are very much encouraged to apply to this program!
