A Great Lineup of Social Justice Films!

For the 11th year CoDev is thrilled to be hosting the Vancouver stop of the World Community Film Festival on Feb 10-12, 2012 at Langara College. This unique festival of amazing documentaries is curated by one of our Canadian Partners, the World Community Development Education Society in Courtenay, and is BC’s largest social justice film festival.

FilmFest MiniImage 2011The festival’s mandate is to gather Vancouver’s diverse social justice community to 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.

The films at the festival act as tools for awareness, analysis, action and collaboration. They allow us to gain an understanding of others’ perspectives, explore new ideas and engage in conversations.  We hope these films will spark dialogue within your communities and provide possibilities to get involved, or to deepen our involvement, with issues that matter to you.

What’s great about the 2012 festival?

    I am a teacher at Sutherland Secondary in North Vancouver. I will be starting up a Social Justice 12 course in Sept. 2012 and would like to be on your email list, please.
    Very excited about what you do. Could my students be involved in the film fest?
