5th Annual Projecting Change Film Festival

Full schedule to be released March 15th

What's new?

Once again we're partnering with SFU Woodward's from April 17th–22nd at the Goldcorp Centre for the Arts. Focusing on five major themes – water, climate change, energy, social justice and food – the festival is programmed to enlighten, engage and inspire.

In the summer of 2011, I became involved with a non-profit organization called 'Peace it Together' in Vancouver. I was drawn to its summer program that facilitated the creation of films by youth from conflict areas, who had the opportunity to engage with culturally and politically sensitive topics and produce original films together.
