Documentary film festival

An amazing array of over twenty documentary films comes to Kelowna March 1-4.  The World Community Film Festival will open Thursday night, March 1st with a special film at the Ki-Low-Na Friendship Society. The rest of the films will be shown at Okanagan College Friday evening and all day Saturday and Sunday.

Friday night’s feature will be the Carlos Santana-produced “Dolores” documenting the life of Dolores Huerta co-founder of the United Farm Workers Union.

Other films address topics such as the housing crisis, environmental protection, farm coops and organic agriculture, indigenous issues and rainbow diversity.  Films include local productions and international “docbusters”. Full film descriptions and times can be found at www.worldfilmfestkelowna.net.

An Activist Arena will be part of the festival where people can find local activist groups.  Good food is available during the festival as well.

The volunteer committee has maintained a “free admission-education is a right” policy over the film festival’s fifteen-year history. Donations are accepted for local charities.
