The Georgia Straight proudly sponsors the Projecting Change Film Festival
The Projecting Change Film Festival takes place at the Goldcorp Centre for the Arts until April 22. The six-day environmental and social-issue film festival (which started on April 17) explores the five major themes of water, climate change, energy, social justice, and sustainable food through film screenings, a documentary workshop, and a closing-night event.
Each film screening is paired with a speaker or panel discussion designed to delve deeper into these global issues. Films on offer include Urbanized, Switch, “Truck Farm”, The City Dark, If a Tree Falls, Miss Representation, “One Beach”, “Pipe Dreams”, and Life in a Day. A full schedule of events and screenings can be found here.
”Each year, we thoughtfully select films and speakers that will inspire the most discussion and engagement from our guests,” explains Brady Dahmer, PCFF cofounder. “Many have called us a film-festival-meets-TED-talk-type event, and nothing could be more true. We want people to think and start engaging in the issues the films promote.”
