MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The mission of the Women's International Film & Arts Festival (WIFF) is to empower women's artistic vision internationally.

The goal of (WIFF) is to be the premier international festival that brings together women artists from all over the world to network, to exhibit films and other art forms, and to encourage the marketing and distribution of their work, while providing a forum to address women's issues.

With women representing only 7% of filmmakers, we would like to increase the number of women in the industry and support those women who are actively involved by assisting filmmakers and artists with the development of their craft.


ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Women's International Film & Arts Festival, Miami 2014 - Reel Art: Reel Business

The Ninth Annual Women's International Film & Arts Festival (WIFF) is one of the few international film and arts festivals dedicated to women. This five-day extravaganza, consisting of indoor and outdoor red carpet film screenings, fashion shows, workshops/symposia, and of course, parties, is a celebration of women and all who love women.

Set in sexy South Floridai, WIFF is a great location to screen films, network at parties, sit by the beach, and possibly spot celebrities and industry pros sipping pina coladas and mojitos at one of our outdoor film screenings, while enjoying the sunny South Florida weather with March/April temperatures averaging 81degrees Fahrenheit (28 C) .

Awarded best 2007 and 2013 Miami Film Festival by the Miami New Times Newspaper, the event has attracted Academy Award Winner Halle Berry, 2007 Oscar Nominee (Babel), Adriana Barraza, Emmy, Grammy and Golden Globe Award (American Gangster) winning actress and legend Ms. Ruby Dee, NAACP Image Award recipient, author and actress Victoria Rowell, The Breakfast Club's Alley Sheedy and the beautiful Vivica A. Fox.

As we celebrate our 9th annual event with days complete with panels and workshops, and evenings filled with red carpet film screenings, we anticipate WIFF 2014 to be better than ever!
