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 any support is appreciated!
Dates & Location
