Hosted by Deviio, Exxtend was an event during TIFF that brought together hundreds of local emerging female talent to have an open and honest discussion about gender politics in the film industry, as well as how to get one’s leg in the door of a fiercely competitive business.

Beyond a panel discussion on stage moderated by Nadia Maria Oliva, the night offered an opportunity for so many women to show their work, including Sophia Bohdanowicz
Grace EakinsAlicia K. HarrisJulia HendricksonNicole KrstinMoira NessEmilia PerriFarihah Aliyah ShahGemma WarrenHaya Waseem and Dominique van Olm.

There was also a performance by Falcon Jane, and it should be mentioned that the gorgeous design on event collateral was by Natalie Mathers
