Cordillera's Diversity Initiative

We believe film festivals can be a powerful platform for social change and strive to provide a voice to all underrepresented communities with a special focus on Female, LGBTQ & Indigenous story tellers.


"If CIFF isn’t on your list, it should be. One of the best festival experiences we’ve had. Everyone was very welcoming, from the festival team to the other filmmakers in attendance. The programs were well curated, honored to be screened with such high quality films. The venue was great, DCPs shown on a big screen with cushy reclining seats for the audience. Q&As after every screening, lodging and meals provided, panels, parties & more. Truly a wonderful experience."
