Justice Film Festival a tremendous success

  • Jan. 30, 2013 4:12 p.m.

The Hearts of Women (HOW) hosted the fifth annual Red Deer Justice Film Festival Jan. 17-19 at the Margaret Parsons Theatre in Red Deer College.

We sincerely thank our generous sponsors, each of the excellent discussion leaders, and our master of ceremonies, Gerry Feehan QC. Thanks to everyone who attended any of the films for your interest, participation, written feedback and generous donations; these donations are an investment in next year’s festival.

We also thank each of the NGOs who set up their display each day and Red Deer College for their excellent venue.

Each of the 10 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. New interest has been sparked; action has been encouraged. Let us “dare to reach out our hands into the darkness to pull another hand into the light”, and learn to be Happy ourselves.

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

We look forward to sponsoring next year’s Justice Film Festival mid-January 2014.
