Forward in Film
Through The Ages: A Night of Local Short Films

Forward in Film Society presents Through the Ages, a collection of short films by Vancouver based, female-identifying, and gender diverse filmmakers.

This collection examines different aspects of our culture and nature throughout the span of a lifetime. With a diverse range of
filmmakers comes a kaleidoscope of perspectives, and stories that will both take you away and pull you back into the deepest parts of yourself. This night is a celebration of our local filmmakers, and the inaugural event for Forward in Film, which is committed to fostering a spirit of curiosity and camaraderie within our community.

Forward in Film is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting female-identifying and gender diverse emerging filmmakers in the greater Vancouver area. Their mission is to combat conscious and unconscious biases in the film industry and learn from people of all genders while building a strong community to network, learn, mentor, support, and shareideas through various programs and events.

All proceeds from the evening will support Forward in Film’s Short Film Incubator Program.
