The 6th annual Vancouver Women in Film Festival returns this March with over 45 feature and short-length films, the return of the Digital Media Forum, Awards, Pitching Sessions, Panels, Networking Events, and a special screening of the Women In Film & Television International (WIFTI) short film showcase to celebrate International Women’s Day (March 8th).

Aside from the variety of films the festival provides some excellent networking opportunities at their opening and closing galas as well as the Meet & Greet Event which will take place February 10th at Moxie’s on Davie from 6:00pm-8:00pm. The Meet & Greet is a free event and no RSVP is required.

The Digital Media Forum is a unique event all on its own as well. It’s one full day of panels and discussions focusing on women working in the digital media realm. Sessions include topic like moving forward in social media (what’s next?), making a go of a career in digital media, how to apply these tool to the film and television industry, and more.

Tickets for filmes and events start at $25 (Women in Film members), $35 (non-members) and $80 for whole festival passes. Follow the WIFF blog, Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube for additional information.
