Presented by 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 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 first screened/aired between January 1, 2023, and December 31, 2023, as a festival screening, in a theatrical release, on broadcast television, or on a reputable nationally recognized streaming platform.

The jury will be instructed to consider WIFT-AT’s mission in their selection process.

The WIFT-AT Award for Best Director will be presented during the Screen Nova Scotia Gala Awards in May 2024.
