Projecting Change Film Festival (PCFF), Western Canada’s only environmental and social issue film festival is taking place May 26th-29th. The festival is heading into its fourth year at SFU Woodwards and unites individuals who are passionate about exploring some of today’s most pressing global issues through thought provoking films and engaging discussions with speakers from around the world.
A film-festival-meets-TED-talk-type of event, PCFF kicks off with an Opening Night Gala, co-presented
by Eco Fashion Week, on Thursday, May 26th at 7pm which will include a fashion show featuring a retrospective of Jeff Garner’s Prophetik as well as a 30 minute documentary about his eco-fashion line.
In addition to film screenings and speaker series, PCFF includes Youth Day on Friday May 27th. Youth Day empowers and educates students from elementary and secondary schools across the lower mainland about issues relevant to their communities. This year, Youth Day is pleased to feature What’s On Your Plate?, a witty and provocative documentary produced and directed by award-winning Catherine Gund about kids and food politics. Youth Day will also include The Clean Bin Project, a documentary by Vancouver filmmakers and partners Jen Rustemeyer and Grant Baldwin who challenge each other to a year long contest to see who can produce the least amount of waste.
Projecting Change Film Festival takes place at SFU Woodwards, 149 W. Hastings Street in Vancouver from Thursday, May 26–Sunday, May 29. For more information and a full list of films please visit: www.projectingchange.ca.
