The Travelling World Community Film Festival will take place in Kelowna March 7-10, at UBCO (March 7-8) and Okanagan College’s KLO campus (March 9-10).
The program this year features an outstanding selection of 43 documentary films from around the world. The films focus on the environment, social justice/human rights, and the arts.
“This festival is a great way for people to get out with friends and neighbours and start thinking together about creating a vibrant democracy” says Carol Kergan, festival co-organizer.
Festival highlights this year include:
- Status Quo, The Unfinished Business of Feminism in Canada, a special film for International Women's Day (March 8th);
- Sing Your Song, an inspirational survey of the life of singer/actor Harry Belafonte and his tenacious activism;
- Shift Change, stories of successful employee-owned businesses that provide secure, dignified jobs in democratic workplaces;
- Maestra, a moving exploration of the impact of the 1961 literacy campaign on the Cuban women who participated.
Exciting locally-produced features include:
- Holistic Healing in the Okanagan, on local medical pluralism;
- Spinning Green, on SPIN farming & Curtis Stone;
- BEE-LINE, a proletarian bug dance for the honey bee.
Admission to the festival is free of charge. Donations are accepted for the Ki-low-na Friendship Centre and Inn from the Cold.
