Women Making Waves 2020

Created by women for the benefit of all genders, the annual Women Making Waves Conference celebrates, empowers and connects industry professionals. The Conference is a unique opportunity to learn from industry experts, network with peers, and participate in Women in Film and Television - Atlantic’s ongoing efforts to expand diversity and gender equality in film and television. The Conference is an opportunity for film, television and screen-based media professionals in a variety of roles to come together and learn about the industry.

The agenda includes presentations, panel discussions, and plenty of networking opportunities. Celebrate emerging talent at the CBC Pitch Competition and recognize outstanding women working in the local film industry at the IOM Media Ventures WAVE Awards Celebration Dinner.


The Conference routinely attracts influential movers and shakers in the film and entertainment industries, who come to discuss both the art and business of developing projects for film and television. We have an exciting slate of instructors, speakers and panellists this year representing a wide range of roles across the spectrum of film and television production.


The Women Making Waves Conference is Women in Film and Television - Atlantic’s (WIFT-AT) premier annual event!


The Conference is just one way we advance the careers of women working in film and television in the Atlantic provinces.
