MARL Human Rights Film Festival
Saturday, March 24, 2018
Gas Station Arts Centre (447 River Ave)
Join us for the 8th Annual MARL Human Rights Film Festival! Film is a powerful tool that can help spark public education, build collective understanding of inequity and discrimination, and create community dialogue about human rights issues locally and globally.
This year's MARL Human Rights Film Festival will connect the films we're watching to local resources and groups that are taking action for equity and justice.
Entry to the festival is by donation, though no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. Anyone is invited to attend any, or all, of the Festival's programming throughout the day. Films are rated between G and PG-13. No advance tickets will be sold, so please arrive in time to ensure your seat.
