World Film Festival Kelowna is a local committee made up of film loving social activists who wish to share the wonderful Travelling World Film Festival along with additional documentary selections to our local Okanagan Community. We love our festival with its focus on social and environmental subjects which strive to show a better way is indeed possible and that change needs to happen ( and is happening already) and soon! Thanks in part to great institutional support of Okanagan College and its Communications Dept and UBCO and its Cultural Studies Dept we are able to share the festival with a non cost admission policy and donations collected are shared with Inn from the Cold and the Ki low Na Friendship Society. We just celebrated our 10th year of bringing this festival to Kelowna. Documentary films are a very valid way to educate and share information about issues.

I make essay-style indie documentary films, the kind that live outside of the mainstream. I also teach documentary and film studies in the film program at NSCAD University (www.nscad.ca), I write about film and have been involved with film programming, including with the Halifax Independent Filmmaker’s Festival and the infamous Doc-ula event. My books include: “Working on Screen”, “Rain/Drizzle/Fog: Film and Television in Atlantic Canada” and “John Walker’s Passage.” A member of DOC-Atlantic.

Le Cinéma sous les étoiles, c’est une trentaine de projections citoyennes, conviviales et gratuites mettant en lumière des problématiques sociales, politiques et environnementales cruciales et préoccupantes.

En plus de la simple joie d’apprécier une œuvre en plein air, notre plateforme offre un lieu de rencontre qui permet de tisser des liens entre les gens du quartier. Cet espace d’échanges et de discussions donne la chance aux citoyens de découvrir les documentaristes d’ici, artisans du cinéma social ainsi que de décortiquer des enjeux d’actualité locaux et internationaux.

Accessibles et gratuites, nos activités se déplacent au cœur même des quartiers, cette approche est essentielle pour attirer les citoyens à réfléchir autour des thématiques proposées. Rendue possible grâce à une collaboration exceptionnelle entre les artisans du documentaire, les groupes communautaires, Desjardins et la ville de Montréal, notre quatrième saison de cinéma urbain comprend une programmation riche et cohérente toujours à l’affût des grands enjeux d’actualité.

We are part of the national and international grassroot network Cinema Politica. We are the first local of the network to be founded in Quebec city. Our goals are to promote political films, to support and connect with the local scene and to engage our participants in an active reflexion on an array of issues from here and elsewhere.
To do so, we organize, during the school year, a series of screenings, which are followed by a discussion period with guest animators to discuss the issues presented in the movie and explore further. The entrance to those events is on the principle of voluntary donation.
We are a non-for-profit organisation run by volunteers.

Dedicated to the innovative use of film as a tool for community engagement, it was has been referred to as “one of Victoria’s most successful cultural enterprises” (Michael D. Reid, Times Colonist 2011)

In 2012, OPEN CINEMA developed an innovative hybrid event format that extends community engagement into the virtual realm. Using Livestream and a moderated Tweetchat, online reach has risen from 20,000 in October 2012 to 123,000 in April 2013.
