Call for Submissions for the Cineworks, DOC BC & WIFTV Film Showcase


A collaboration between WIFTVCineworks and DOC BC, the FILM AND MEDIA SHOWCASE is a monthly member screening featuring works by members of the three organizations. Taking place in Cineworks Studio at 1131 Howe Street, the showcase will be held on the last Wednesday evening of each month from 7-10pm.

Each screening will include works by members of each organization followed by a question and answer session with the creators, and time for networking. This initiative will provide working filmmakers an opportunity to share their creations with other practitioners, across genres and in a variety of lengths, in a forum created for discovery, discussion and inspiration.



  • Members of more than one organization may submit through only one of their organizations.
  • To be eligible to submit through DOC BC, you must be a member of DOC BC at the time of submission and at the time of the screening, and you must be available to attend the screening and to participate in a Q&A session.
