WIFT-AT Nova Scotia Best Director Award
“If there’s specific resistance to women making movies, I just choose to ignore that as an obstacle for two reasons: I can’t change my gender, and I refuse to stop making movies.”– Kathryn Bigelow, Director (Zero Dark Thirty, The Hurt Locker)
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. Based on feedback from members, we have expanded eligibility to films released after July 1, 2019, recognizing that the COVID-19 pandemic greatly impacted the number of films released in 2020. This award is open only to full members of WIFT-AT.
Not a member?
The WIFT-AT Award for Best Director will be presented during the Screen Nova Scotia Gala Awards in Fall 2021.
Deadline for entries: May 21, 2021.
