WIFF is delighted to support and promote the talents of our local filmmakers.

Now in its tenth year, WIFF ‘Local’ 2019 celebrates local filmmaking talent by encouraging local short and feature film submissions for programming consideration. Please read the SUBMISSION GUIDELINE before submitting.

In addition to our regular WIFF programmers, we are excited to announce that there will be a panel of three independent programmers to judge WIFF local film submissions, and to select the best local films. To allow the panel sufficient time to view and judge submitted films, the submission deadline has been moved to Friday, August 2.  As always, early submission is recommended.

Films are selected on the basis of quality and originality, and on their ability to contribute significantly to the overall success of WIFF 2019.

WIFF 2019 runs from Friday, November 1 to Sunday, November 10th, and is presented by the WFCU Credit Union.

Submissions for 2019 are now closed. Thank you for your consideration, and all who applied. Filmmakers selected to participate in WIFF Local 2019 will be notified by September 30, 2019. Filmmakers not selected will be notified by email.
