The Future is Female* Mentorship Program is back for a 3rd year in 2020!

This mentorship program is aimed at involving more women-identified, trans and non-binary folx in the Gimli Film Festival and the greater filmmaking community! 

Thanks to our 2020 FiF* Mentorship Program sponsors: ACTRA Manitoba!

The program takes place in conjunction with the 20th annual Gimli Film Festival. This program is completely free to participants! 

GFF 2018 Future is Female* Mentorship Program attendees by busAs part of this program, GFF will provide up to 55 applicants with free transportation to the festival via charter bus from Winnipeg to Gimli for a full day of inspiring and educational woman-driven film programming during the Gimli Film Festival. This includes woman-directed film screenings, Q&As with out-of-town filmmakers, panels and more!  In 2019, GFF welcomed over 60 participants as part of this program, as additional participants above the capacity of the bus are welcome to attend if they arrange their own rides!

*This program is of course meant to be inclusive, and as such the asterisk here is meant to represent any non-binary, trans and woman-identified folks that don’t prescribe to traditional gender norms.  All woman-identified, trans and non-binary individuals are very much encouraged to apply to this program!
