Founded by filmmaker and producer Frances-Anne Solomon, CineFam is registered as a not-for-profit company in Canada.

CineFAM is a Haitian Creole word meaning “films by women”.

Our mandate is to support bold, original film stories by Women of Colour Creators around the globe.

Since 2016, our annual activities include: a 1-day film festival; a short film challenge for emerging filmmakers; and a partnership with the Durban Filmmart to develop South Africa/Canada co-productions led by African women. In 2019, CineFAM launched its first Feature Film Incubator for Canadian women of colour directors.
