Check out the great lineup for the 11th annual World Community Film Festival, which runs February 10-12 at Langara College. Our terrific opening night film Just Do It is a Vancouver premiere and is preceded by a talk organized by Village Vancouver from 5-7 pm by Richard Heinberg, one of world’s foremost peak oil educators. Our Saturday night feature, Louder Than a Bomb, is an award-winning look at a high school slam poetry competition. You can find our full daytime schedule here.
The World Community Film Festival is BC’s largest social justice film fest. It features over 35 social justice and environmental documentaries that go to the heart of issues confronting communities here and around the world. The focus of the festival is to motivate audiences to action through awareness of issues both local and global.
The festival is produced by CoDevelopment Canada and the World Community Development Education Society, and co-sponsored by Langara College.
