The MUFF Society

A feminist community that celebrates women in film/TV.

The MUFF Society (Monthly Underground Female Film Society) is a feminist community based in Toronto that celebrates women—both on and off screen—in film and television. We accomplish this by by providing our community with stories of interest, news about local women-centric films and events, and writing/profiles on our blog.


HER-Story was a unique documentary series from The MUFF Society (Monthly Underground Female Film Society). Drawing from our female-led/centric film team criteria, we screened documentaries directed, produced, filmed, and/or edited by female talent. While the subject matter itself did not have to explore women's issues or themes, we aimed to program films covering topical issues from passionate filmmakers who are willing to share their behind-the-lens experience with our community.

Our past HER-Story events included:

My Millennial Life
with director Maureen Judge, editor Cathy Gulkin and subject Meron in attendance for a Q&A.

The Prison in 12 Landscapes
with panel moderated by journalist Sinead Mulhern, featuring director Brett Story, Mark Kerwin (KLINK), Zoe (public speaker), and Lindsay Jennings (Prison Program Coordinator and Peer Support Worker) co-presented with KLINK Coffee. // Read the full recap here.
