Women in Film and Television –Toronto (WIFT-T) has embarked on an ambitious study to profile Canada’s "screen-based media," which include film, television and new media. The study will be the first of its kind in 10 years, says WIFT-T president and past chair Kate Hanley, and will report on a broad number of industry-defining parameters with a view to helping government make appropriate policy decisions. With a raft of heavyweight partners on the project’s steering committee and deep-pocketed confirmed and to-be-confirmed financing partners on board, the study promises to be one of the most comprehensive yet of the broad Can-adian entertainment industry.
