The 2015 Women in Film & Television International Short Film Showcase

WIFTI SHORT-CASE  is a powerful demonstration of our Chapters’ members creativity, vision and artistry.  Founded in 2004, the Short-Case presents selected films from WIFTI Chapters around the world; some of the recent Short-Case short films have been nominated for Academy Awards, received distribution deals and garnered recognition internationally.

To mark the 10th Anniversary of the showcase on March 8, 2015 in celebration of International Women’s Day, WIFTI will exhibit an international online showcase of the selected submissions.   It is anticipated that WIFTI Chapters around the world will also host live screenings of the SHORT-CASE on that day.

Cash prizes of $1000, $500 and $250 will be awarded to the top three films selected by the Jury.  The prize will be awarded to the female director. We encourage members of every Chapter to participate!
