Starting Tuesday, November 28, WAMP will be participating in the global philanthropic event of Giving Tuesday. Giving Tuesday is the world’s largest generosity movement that encourages individuals to support their local not-for-profits and charities in any way that they can.
I ❤️ Film! is WAMP’s fundraising initiative to breakdown financial barriers to make the power of film accessible to everyone.
This year, the Yellowknife International Film Festival hosted:
1200+ in-person audience members at 16 programs, and 2 events
88 online audience members at 6 programs
Of the 52 total films (features and shorts):
15 were made by Indigenous filmmakers,
21 were made by women-identifying filmmakers, and
35 were made by Canadian filmmakers
With a goal of $2,500.00, all money raised will be used to offer individuals and families free access to the 2024 Yellowknife International Film Festival to enjoy the diverse range of voices that make up our amazing film program.
