    What does the current state of free expression and human rights look like through the lens of a Canadian journalist, a film maker and an actress and Indigenous activist? Three industry professionals weighed in on the discussion at Toronto’s Paintbox Bistro on Thursday November 12th, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Amnesty International’s Reel Awareness Human Rights Film Festival.

     

    The mandate of the Just Film Festival is to gather Vancouver’s diverse social justice community at a festival that allows for reflection, provides a forum for discussion, and prompts participants to action. While the issues are often difficult, we feel it is important to provide tools and ideas for solutions. With this festival we want to provide opportunities for you to be involved in: By learning more about the world around us, we gain understanding of others’ perspectives. We hope the films you see will challenge you to explore new ideas and begin new conversations. Take a look at the program, reserve your tickets, and take action at the Social Justice bazaar in the theatre atrium.

    “In the course of history, there comes a time when humanity is called to shift to a new level of consciousness, to reach a higher moral ground. A time when we have to shed our fear and give hope to each other. That time is now.” (Wangari Maathai)
