Each year WIFF brings the local community together to celebrate the art of cinema, culture, and entertainment. We pride ourselves on offering the best, innovative, film experiences.

Charles Clark Square

WIFF transformed Charles Clark Square into a free outdoor cinema with a state-of-the-art LED screen and sound that will fill the square.

WIFF Alley

Through the addition of increased lighting and incredible public art installations, WIFF Alley will attract locals and tourists alike to celebrate film and downtown Windsor.


Kristina Brandt – Windsor-based Visual Artist. Brandt was commissioned by WIFF to help beautify the alley by integrating the built environment with engaging and fun art pieces. This includes the rainbow staircase that highlights famous movie quotes, as well as silhouettes of famous film characters, and fun food items that enhance the look of the alley.

David Derkatz (DERKZ) – Windsor-based, Multidisciplinary artist who’s known for large-scale murals, integrating Graffiti and Fine-art using vivid/energetic methods. DERKZ was commissioned by WIFF to paint a small mural that pays respects to the community of Windsor, by showcasing Windsor’s roots of being known as ‘Rose City’, while also being fun and engaging for patrons to interact with.

Daniel Bombardier (DENIAL) – is a Windsor-based, Canadian pop/mural artist whose aerosol and stencil artworks critique contemporary politics, capitalism, consumerism, and the human condition. DENIAL was commissioned by WIFF to design and execute a large mural collage that pays homage to the escapism of going to the movies and enjoying all things about being at the cinema.
