As a non-profit, IFWC raises funds to present local and international cinema with winter, alpine, and polar themes in any style or genre.
Through your generosity, we are able to support filmmakers from all walks of life, including Indigenous peoples and immigrants, who can tell their stories from unique perspectives.
As a smaller festival, we’ve had to deal with the impacts of COVID-19, so any support is appreciated!
Dates & Location
February 10 to 19, 2023
The International Festival of Winter Cinema is beyond excited to announce that we will be returning to Hawrelak Park, to continue our unique environment, and staying free to attend.
