March 21 marks the International Day for the Elimination of Racism. In the spirit of sharing stories, CFRAC is partnering with the Canadian Cultural Mosaic Foundation to bring their Anti-Racism Film Festival to Edmonton. This festival will be preceded by a 48-hour film challenge during which teams will create films that explore ideas of racism, discrimination, and justice. The film challenge will take place from February 17-19, 2017, during which a Poetry Jam will also be hosted at Massawa Cafe on February 18 at 7:00pm. All completed films from the challenge will be showcased during the inaugural film festival on March 21 at the Red Carpet screening at Princess Theatre. We hope to create a space in which a voice can be given to the racial discrimination that many of our community members experience, all the while building community.
