Since its inception in 1997, over 200 women directors from across Canada have benefited from WIDC initiatives, production awards and development programs.

"WIDC is delighted to collaborate with Canada Screens on this new, dedicated space to showcase Canadian women directors. Increasing audience access to Canadian woman-directed films is strategic to WIDC’s mandate and the launch of this channel is a timely part of our 20th Anniversary celebrations. We look forward to introducing you to a specially curated collection of films by Canada’s most talented on-screen story-tellers who just happen to women directors."
