Here at FITC, we know there are tons of talented women doing groundbreaking work in the digital space, and we want to make sure these women are represented at FITC Toronto 2014. So, for the fourth year in a row, we have set aside FREE festival tickets to give away. Whether you are an illustrator, a designer, code fanatic, engineer, filmmaker, writer, journalist, or a photographer, we want to know why YOU want to come to FITC Toronto 2014 – so show us in the best way you know how.
