Breakthroughs Film Festival Promo Reel from Octavia Films on Vimeo.

“The Breakthroughs Film Festival is the only festival in Canada devoted exclusively to short films by New Generation female artists. We show films from any and every genre made by talented young women from all over Canada.

Breakthroughs refers to the struggles women artists face in an industry where they make up only 6 percent of directors and must, in many cases, work even harder than their male counterparts to make their voices heard.

BFF is presented by Octavia Films: A Nonprofit for Women, an organization dedicated to promoting women filmmakers in Canadian film.”
