The Projecting Change Film Festival was one of my favorite festival experiences from traveling with “World Peace and other 4th-Grade Achievements”.  The staff and audiences were truly engaged and positive, their spirit was infectious.  There was a sincere openness to exploring media as a means to bring about positive change in the world.  What makes me curious are the stories of others, particularly the stories of unsung people often neglected by media attention, who on a daily basis make our […]

Part coming-of-age tale, part cops-and-robbers thriller, the film asks hard questions about environmentalism, activism, and the way we define terrorism.  Katherine Monk, Vancouver Sun film critic had […]
