Toronto, Ontario – Humber College’s Film and Television Production graduating students will present their final film projects to industry professionals on Tuesday, April 18, 2017.

This year’s projects will highlight women directors, writers, producers and directors of photography -- production roles that are typically dominated by men. In 2016, only seven per cent of the top 250 highest grossing films were directed by women, while just 13 per cent employed female writers.

Seven of the eight short films to be presented are written and directed by female students, which address issues including immigration, LGTBQ+ issues and self discovery.
