Event Details

The St. John's International Women's Film Festival is excited to partner again this year withLawnya Vawnya, with support from Rocket Bakery,to present a special film screening of the feature-documentary Play Your Gender, directed by Stephanie Clattenburg.

5% of music producers are women even though many of the most bankable pop stars are female. Only 6 women have ever been nominated for the ‘Producer of the Year’ Grammy, and no woman has ever won. In Play Your Gender, Juno award-winning producer Kinnie Starr is on a quest to find out why this disparity exists by speaking to music industry stars and veterans about the realities of being a woman in the recording studio.

Play Your Gender features interviews with Sara Quinn of Tegan & Sara, Melissa Auf der Maur of the Smashing Pumpkins, Patty Schemel of Hole, Chantal Kreviazuk, and many more of the music industry’s most talented women.

St. John's international Women's Film Festival

The St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival (SJIWFF) is one of the longest running women’s film festivals in the world.

Established in 1989 to support and promote women filmmakers, the SJIWFF produces several screenings, workshops and other events throughout the year, culminating in a five-day annual film festival held in October in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. These dynamic events attract over 4,500 participants. Every year the Festival receives over 400 film submissions and from those we present a powerful program of international documentaries, short films and feature works.

Festival week also features the [Interactive] Film Industry Forum, consisting of panels, workshops and face-to-face meetings for filmmakers, producers, and interactive creators. The Forum focuses on the business of filmmaking while the Festival celebrates international works by women.
