What started as a response to being unable to hold the Festival in 2020 and 2021, has evolved into a yearly outdoor community event. WIFF Under the Stars is held over one weekend in the summer where WIFF screens films all day over the weekend, free for all to enjoy. A main focus of the initiative for WIFF is to give back to the community that makes us a successful organization year-over-year and to increase the accessibility of great films.
In 2023, WIFF hosted the outdoor, three-day WIFF Under the Stars event at the Civic Plaza at Windsor City Hall Square. By setting up a 20’ LED screen, we turned the lawn space into an ultimate summer film experience. WIFF screened 20 films including Encanto, Back to the Future, a Top Gun double-feature and more. Also included in the programming were Canadian films Adult Adoption, July Talk: Love Lives Here, Drinkwater and others.
