Celebrating Female Filmmakers

2019 ZONTA Film Festival

The ZONTA Film Festival (ZFF) showcases courageous, powerful and though-provoking films that are directed and produced by women.

During the 2019 festival, we were able to provide 50 students with festival passes to view a series of documentaries and films to continue to spark creativity amongst our youth in Waterloo Region.

Creative Capital of Canada

The Creative Capital of Canada is a movement of community and business leaders seeking to celebrate and extend the lineage of problem solving creativity within Waterloo Region. 100 years ago, creative minds turned our community into an industrial powerhouse. Another generation led our transition into the innovation economy. This is our “creative lineage” and HIP believes we have a responsibility to keep it alive and build creative confidence in a new generation of talent who call Waterloo Region home. Join us.
