New Works-in-Progress Forums

Participate in the filmmaker's journey with two works-in-progress sessions.

The SIFF New Works-in-Progress Forum (WiP) brings global film teams, industry mentors, and a select SIFF audience directly into the creative process before a picture is “locked.” It is a first-hand experience helping to shape narrative directly with the filmmakers.

Before the film is picture-locked, audiences and industry mentors watch the film together with the filmmakers and engage in a moderated discussion together after the screening. Be a part of the filmmakers creative journey.

The mission of WiP has always been to bring together the three vital parts of the cinema experience: the filmmaker (as artist), the industry (as conduit), and the audience. SIFF’s legendary audiences are the key element in bringing filmmakers’ stories closer to their audience in this uniquely collaborative setting.
