Women of WIFF


What's On, December 2023



Directed by Madison Thomas

Women of WIFF Official Selection, 2022

Buffy Sainte-Marie: Carry It On documents the life, music and activism of the legendary Indigenous singer-songwriter Buffy Sainte-Marie. A documentary that is as captivating as its subject, who smashed through barriers to become an inspiration to fans and fellow musicians alike.

Each year, a film is selected and screened, followed by a question and answer period with representatives from the film, and a discussion-filled post-film reception to conclude the evening.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with special guests.

Along with UWindsor Office of the President, Women of WIFF is generously supported by local individuals who have made contributions to help WIFF continue to ensure women’s voices are heard and their stories shared.

BUFFY SAINTE-MARIE: CARRY IT ON screens on Thursday, Nov. 3 at 6 p.m.

Important Films by and About Women

Women of WIFF is an annual celebration of women – from filmmakers, to change makers, to those who are brave enough to share their impactful stories.

Women of WIFF is a festival component that was born organically, through the generosity of local individuals who wanted to ensure that women’s voices were heard, their experiences shared and their viewpoints discussed. Every year, the festival will showcase a compelling film as the Women of WIFF Official Selection.

Women of WIFF supporters are invited to not only attend the film, but to also attend a private reception featuring special guests and participate in this great community-building and networking opportunity.

Join Women of WIFF now for $100, which includes a ticket to the screening and private reception.
