The Windsor International Film Festival has cancelled the 2021 festival, initially planned for this November, saying the move was necessary to ensure the safety and wellbeing of patrons, volunteers and staff.

“The unknowns of the pandemic create a number of challenges for our staff, volunteers and patrons,” said Vincent Georgie, Executive Director and Chief Programmer for WIFF. “We look forward to the festival returning in 2022 and to welcoming everyone downtown for exceptional film experiences”.

Organizers did have some good news, announcing that the popular WIFF Under the Stars events will return this summer.

“We’ve heard resoundingly that residents loved the drive-in style event that was last year’s WIFF Under the Stars,” said Georgie. “We look forward to bringing back that fun, nostalgia and celebration of movies.”

More information about WIFF Under the Stars events will be released in the coming weeks.
