  • The Windsor International Film Festival (WIFF) is thrilled to reveal that Empire of Light will be presented as the Opening Night Film of WIFF 2022. Directed by Oscar-Winner Sam Mendes (American BeautySkyfall), this story is about the love of movies stars Oscar-Winners Olivia Colman and Colin Firth.
  • The 2022 selection for Women of WIFF, programming that highlights important films by and about women, is Buffy Sainte-Marie: Carry It On. Directed by Madison Thomas, this is an inspiring documentary about the life, music, and activism of legendary Indigenous singer-songwriter Buffy Sainte-Marie.
  • WIFF will be closing the 11-day festival with a screening of Maïmouna Doucouré’s Hawa, a heartwarming coming-of-age film about finding family and finding yourself.
