Watch, engage, act.
Projecting Change is a 5-day film festival featuring award-winning documentaries and exploring themes such as environmental and social sustainability, empowerment, identity, and global culture. Hosted in partnership with SFU Woodward’s, the curated film and speakers sessions and unique festival format are a platform for audience engagement, inspiration, and action.
Founded in 2007 by Brady Dahmer and Lindsay Nahmiache, the festival has proven popular amongst a truly diverse group of innovation-minded people. Co-founder Brady Dahmer attributes this to the festival focus “PCFF is about positive change. Come to our festival hungry for knowledge and we promise you will leave with a head full of inspiration.” Inspiration no doubt in part due to the participation of such luminaries as Dr. David Suzuki, Captain Paul Watson and Mayor Gregor Robertson – all former festival speakers.
