WIFF seeking submissions for 2023 festival

Did you make a movie last year?

Windsor International Film Festival is looking for local commits.

The festival screens a large number of local programs each year, including feature films and short films. Last year, it featured five feature films and 14 short films, including one on the history of Willisted Manor.

Registrations opened last Monday and local filmmakers must enter by August 11th. Filmmakers will learn in September whether their films have been accepted.

All local submissions are reviewed and selected by an independent jury of industry professionals.

“WIFF is created and maintained by members of our community,” said Vincent Georgie, executive director and lead programmer. “It’s important for us to highlight some great talent at Windsor-Essex.”

According to WIFF’s website, as many as 50 entries are expected to be submitted.

“Every year, our audience fills the theater in support of the local talent on screen. We can’t wait to see what our local filmmakers have been up to,” added Georgie.

Last year’s event broke records with 45,000 tickets sold.

A Windsor lady holds the record for most movies watched at WIFF. She read 77.

This year’s Windsor International Film Festival will be held from October 26 to November 5, 2023.
