The Canadian International Fashion Film Festival will be proud to partner with the multi-service community organization Women’s Habitat of Etobicoke (WHE).
The two companies will come together from November 28-30 to share an official selection screening, live music, silent auctions, award shows and more.
“We are very honored to be part of this event; cinema and fashion have played a vital role in communication, culture, connection and highlighting societal issues. It is so important to address these issues – like that of abused women. We work to support survivors in their recovery and building sustainable livelihoods, but we cannot do our job alone. We are proud and grateful to partner with caring organizations like CANIFFF who are on this journey with us. – Carla Neto, Executive Director, WHE
Now owned by Roger Gingerich, the Canadian International Fashion Film Festival is recognized as a festival that celebrates diversity within the fashion and film industry with an emphasis on respect for the creators within it. By spreading the concept of fashion in films, this festival has brought great significance to how fashion has now reclaimed itself as a leader in its own genre.
This collaborative event aims to shed light on WHE and their support since 1978, where they provide shelter, programs and resources to those identified as women who have experienced poverty and violence. A portion of the proceeds received from the “Annual Silent Auction” on November 28 will be donated to WHE.
“Too often, women don’t have the financial means to leave an abusive relationship. As a society, we must provide resources and give them a much-needed boost to restart their life journey” declare Roger & Martine Gingerich.
