Event Description

 

Activate your mind at the 12th annual World Community Film Festival at Langara College February 15-17. The festival screens over 40 social justice and environmental documentaries set around the world and across the street.

Village Vancouver is pleased to sponsor part of the growth and sustainability program at this year’s festival. Showing on Sunday at noon is Growthbusters: Hooked on Growth, which examines the cultural barriers that prevent us from acting rationally about environmental issues, followed by In Transition 2.0, an inspirational immersion in the Transition movement. Village is also sponsoring the Saturday 2:30 pm screening of Shift Change, which tells the little known stories of employee-owned businesses that compete successfully in today’s economy.

The festival also has an extensive program of food and farming films, with VV as a co-sponsor, while the superb opening night double bill features the Vancouver premieres of two inspiring films about activism: Maestra and Bidder 70. The Saturday night screening is the powerful and poignant Heart of Sky, Heart of Earth.

The Saturday and Sunday daytime program includes films on food and farming, indigenous issues, Black history, the status of women, and the cost of oil. Full schedule and other information about BC’s largest social justice film fest can be found at www.codevfilmfest.org.

The Festival kicks off tonight with VV and Langara College Continuing Studies presenting an opening talk by Mike Lewis "Strengthening Resilience Close to Home". Admission to the talk is by donation.
