The 2020 Windsor International Film Festival 2020 festival originally planned for this November has been cancelled.

“The safety and comfort of our audience and of our team is our top priority” said Vincent Georgie, Executive Director and Chief Programmer for WIFF. “Was this a difficult decision? Yes. But, it was also in many ways an easy decision. WIFF is about bringing people together through film. WIFF is about watching and discussing the best Canadian and International films, seeing old friends in the theatres, making new friends in the lineups and celebrating at the parties all over downtown Windsor. Anything short of this is simply not the WIFF we all want and love”.

In 2019 the festival saw record-breaking ticket sales of over 42,000 and being named Canada’s #1 Volunteer-run Film Festival by TIFF Film Circuit.

“In speaking to our many industry and local partners, we have come to this decision together” said Georgie. “In 2019, we had an exceptional year and we look forward to using this time to build on that momentum to plan the most incredible edition of WIFF 2021”.
