Support SJIWFF

At 29 years old, The St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival (SJIWFF) is one of the province’s largest and most anticipated cultural events of the year. We have grown to be much more than a festival. As a not-for-profit and registered charity, your support is essential in making the SJIWFF and its year-round programming happen. 

Below are ways you can support us and the future of women in film.

Support women in the film, television, and interactive community by becoming a SJIWFF Sponsor. Our Sponsors believe in the power and importance of sharing our stories on a local and global level. Multiple sponsorship levels are available to meet your needs.  

Sponsorship Levels


Purchase and ad in our Festival Program, which is distributed at all of our events, as well as throughout the greater St. John's area. They get into the hands of over 4000 film industry professionals and film enthusiasts.  

Contribute an item to our official Delegate Bags that are given to our local and visiting delegates and sponsors. A great opportunity to showcase a unique product and encourage visitors to discover what you and St. John’s has to offer!
