New Westminster – Inclusion BC Foundation and the BC Self-Advocacy Foundation invite you to join us for our second annual Film Festival, as we celebrate the United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities on December 3.
Produced, programmed and hosted by people with intellectual disabilities, the festival is the only one of its kind in British Columbia. This year’s collection of short films, featuring productions from around the world, provides a unique platform to spark dialogue about the rights and opportunities of people with intellectual disabilities, while celebrating the ongoing movement towards full inclusion in Canada’s societal mosaic.
Our headline Film Festival event in New Westminster is being coordinated with simultaneous screenings by partner organizations in four other communities across British Columbia.
Our headline event in New West will also feature the premiere screening of Demonstrations of Love, a short documentary produced by Inclusion BC Foundation exploring questions about the past, present and future of the inclusion movement, as seen through the eyes of people with intellectual disabilities and their families.
Our Film Festival and documentary premiere are part of Heritage Canada’s official countdown to the Canada 150 celebrations in 2017. The Demonstrations of Love premiere will also serve as the official launch of our Canada 150 project, a year-long participatory initiative celebrating Disability Pride.
We hope you will join us!
When: 7 pm, December 3, 2016
Admission: $5, free to Inclusion BC & BC Self Advocacy Foundation members
