CineFAM Film Festival celebrates its 7th edition at TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto

Toronto, ON – CineFAM Film Festival will celebrate 7 years of bringing thought provoking films December 8-10th, live at TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto and online. This year’s festival looks at the ways in which women of colour connect, create, and thrive. In a time where we are seeing radical changes to the ways in which we as a culture create and consume stories, we look to ways in which our stories will survive us. Who will continue our legacy? What are the bonds we form today that will create the future we want to see? CineFAM will celebrate acceptance, belonging and bold identities. The festival will start with a mixer on December 8 at TIFF’s Founders

Running simultaneously to the festival, CineFAM ShopTalks will return online to this year’s CineFAM edition starting November 21st. The series further amplifies the voices of Canadian women and non-binary filmmakers of colour. The popular program encourages filmmakers to talk about diversity in the film industry and to share their challenges, further exploring how this influences their filmmaking.  CineFAM ShopTalk conversations reveal commonalities across Canada, as well as region-specific disadvantages.
