Presented by Goodmans LLP - A free networking event for WIFT-T members

Join your fellow WIFT-T members for an informative and entertaining evening with decision-makers from Toronto 's leading film festivals!

This is an essential panel for filmmakers interested in learning how to maximize one's experience and exposure at a film festival. Join film and industry programmers from Toronto International Film Festival, Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Film Festival, Worldwide Short Film Festival and Reel World International Film Festival, as they discuss what they look for when putting together a festival line-up, how they select the films to screen and what industry initiatives are available to attending delegates. Filmmakers will have a better understanding of how work is selected, new industry trends, when and how to approach industry decision-makers at the festival and more.
