Justice Film Festival a success

  • Feb. 26, 2014 6:18 p.m.

The Hearts of Women (HOW) recently hosted the sixth annual Red Deer Justice Film Festival Jan. 24-26 at the Margaret Parsons Theatre in the Red Deer College.

We sincerely thank our generous sponsors and each of the excellent discussion facilitators. Also, thank you to everyone who attended the films of their interest, the participation, written feedback and the very generous donations; these donations are an investment in next year’s festival.

We also want to extend a warm thank you to the NGO’s who set up their display each day and Red Deer College for the venue.

Each of the documentaries provided an opportunity for increased awareness of a variety of global and local justice issues. Each film was followed by a short discussion to facilitate greater understanding. Hopefully, the films have sparked new interest and action has been encouraged.

HOW is very pleased to offer Red Deer and area this opportunity to become more informed global citizens.

We again, look forward to hosting next year’s Justice Film Festival, mid-January, 2015. Hope to see you there!
