Women in the Canadian film and television industry are flourishing both behind and in front of the camera, yet their presence on Wikipedia remains modest. On March 8, International Women’s Day, celebrate our homegrown creators by participating in the Film Reference Library’s Women of Canadian Cinema Wiki Edit-A- Thon!
Drop by the Library anytime from 12 to 7pm and document the accomplishments of your favourite female filmmaker, actor, cinematographer, or other industry creator. Work collaboratively or by yourself to fill in Wikipedia’s gaps on established and emerging women in Canadian cinema. Bring your laptop or borrow ours and get comfortable. Both new and experienced editors are welcome.
