Western Canada’s largest documentary Film Festival returns for its 19th season with 82 features and shorts from Canada and the world. The festival starts off with Baljit Sangra's new film Because We Are Girls, the story of a conservative family of Punjabi ancestry in Williams Lake, B. C. coming to terms with sexual abuse.
