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.

THE mini muff society.

The MUFF Society recognizes that part of celebrating women in film is supporting our local film community. There are so many talented local women filmmakers and we want to give them a voice—and a screen. Through our  short film program, mini MUFF, we  showcase at least one short film with each of our monthly screenings in and  feature the filmmaker on our website.
