In true Canadian fashion, WCIFF aims to create a community of local and global filmmakers. We offer the opportunity to get in touch, collaborate and engage with other creative minds.
WCIFF does not have a panel of
"qualified judges" to choose which films should win. The winners are chosen through an audience vote. By doing this, WCIFF seeks to create a positive, accepting environment, without relying on a few selected individuals, who may have biased opinions.
WCIFF wants filmmakers to have the recognition that they deserve by offering them a festival that is easily available, inclusive and fun. Every filmmaker is important and they all should have a fair chance to win an award.
