WIFF Local Jury Panel

MADELINE DECORSO

Madeline DeCorso is a film, television and voice-over actor and writer located in Toronto.

WIFF ‘Local’ celebrates local filmmaking talent by encouraging local short and feature film submissions for programming consideration. Please read the RULES & TERMS on the Film Freeway submission page before submitting.

In addition to our regular WIFF programmers, a panel of three independent industry professionals will judge WIFF local film submissions and to select the best local films to appear in our festival programming.

Films are selected on the basis of quality and originality, and on their ability to contribute significantly to the overall success of WIFF.

Submissions for the 2022 Festival are now Closed! Stay tuned to learn More!
