Our Vision

Connections. Content. Change. 

 
 

Women on Screen is an organization committed to cultivating a more dynamic and inclusive representation of women in film and television. This includes, but is not limited to, encouraging the creation of stories on screen with female-driven content, fostering women's careers in the entertainment industry, and creating connections between similar organizations both locally in Toronto and globally through our online outreach.

 Stories about women from all communities, be they cis-, trans-identified, or other, are a important additions to current discourse and popular understanding of gender. With contributions from our multi-faceted community, Women on Screen aims to move away from essentializing definitions, to fulfill our mandate of creating dynamic representations of women, and to challenge the status quo.
