    Message from Minister Terry French

    On behalf of the Provincial Government, I extend a warm welcome to all participants, guests, and visitors to the 2011 St. Johns International Womens Film Festival, taking place at various locations throughout St. Johns from October 18 to 22.

    From its inception in 1989, this distinguished fi lm festival has developed into a highly-anticipated celebration of local, national, and international fi lmmaking. The festival is an exceptional opportunity to underscore the fi lmmaking community and to celebrate the accomplishments of our many talented female artists.

    For those visiting the province for the fi rst time, I encourage you to explore our historic sites, take in some local entertainment, appreciate the scenery, and take pleasure in the exclusive experience that is Newfoundland and Labrador.

    Sincerely,

    Honourable Terry FrenchMinister, Department of Tourism, Culture and Recreation
