Special International Women's Day Film Event on Thursday April 28 at 5:45 pm

We all know sharing stories can change lives. Films of our stories can inspire action, bring hope and raise awareness. The Zonta Film Festival (ZFF) showcases inspiring, powerful and thought-provoking films made by women. We are one of a limited number of film festivals in Canada that exclusively exhibits female filmmakers.

 

And your ticket makes a difference: ALL proceeds will be donated to support local and global initiatives improving the lives of women and girls. In 2019 ZFF  was able contribute over $22,000 to local organizations and in 2021 our IWD event contributed over $20,000 to Zonta International projects. ZFF tickets are $15.00 per show.
