How To Submit

Presented by Women in Film and Television – Atlantic (WIFT-AT), the Award for Best Director honours the outstanding achievement of a WIFT-AT member based in Nova Scotia. 

Directors from across Nova Scotia are creating outstanding screen-based projects and we want to recognize and celebrate these remarkable artists and their work by shining a light on one accomplished filmmaker who is highly deserving of recognition.

WIFT-AT encourages Nova Scotia-based directors to submit their screen-based projects of any genre, length, or format. The project must have screened/aired between January 1, 2021, and December 31, 2021, as a festival screening, theatrical release, on broadcast television, and/or on a reputable nationally recognized streaming platform.

This award is open only to full members of WIFT-AT. The jury will be instructed to aim to support WIFT-AT’s mission in their selection process.
