Created by women for the benefit of all genders, Women in Film and Television, Atlantic's annual Women Making Waves Conference celebrates the accomplishments of outstanding women in our industry. We welcome everyone who shares that goal.

 

This year, the Halifax-based conference kicks off on March 8, International Women's day, and will be held at The Lord Nelson Hotel & Suites.

Among this year’s remarkable slate of instructors, speakers and panelists include Tamara Podemski, Simone Pero, Jennifer Stewart, Robin McKenna, Renee Laprise, Patricia Rozema, Lisa Baylin and Winnifred Jong. 

Our conference also includes, The Pitch Competition, presented by CBC, as well the annual presentation of the WIFT-AT Wave Awards. 

This year, WIFT-AT is proud to offer two additional concurrent workshops prior to the Conference on Friday, March 8, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.: Fresh and Fierce: A Practical Guide For Women Writing Television in 2019 with Karen Walton, and, Seeing Eye to Eye: Director and Cinematographer Creative Collaboration, with Amy Belling.
