Our vision is to raise awareness of social justice issues and inspire people to take action.
Our goal is to promote films, and to provide a forum for discussion about social justice issues
.

 

 

Please join us for our next Friday Night Film, January 30, 2015, CHASING ICE.
Please stay in touch with us on facebook.

 

We dedicate our films to the founder of the White Rock Social Justice Film Festival, Jack McLachlan, who passed
away Christmas morning. His spirit, his values, empathy, compassion and understanding will live through us.
Every year we will award a Jack McLachlan Memorial Bursary in his honor.

 

  • I AM, Friday, September 26, 2014I AM is the story of a successful Hollywood director, Tom Shadyac (LIAR LIAR, NUTTY PROFESSOR, BRUCE ALMIGHTY), who experienced a life threatening head injury, and his ensuing journey to try and answer two very basic questions: What's wrong with our world? and What can we do about it?
  • MISS REPRESENTATION, Friday, October 31, 2014Media is educating yet another generation that a woman's primary value lay in her youth, beauty and sexuality-and not in her capacity as a leader, making it difficult for women to obtain leadership positions and for girls to reach their full potential. The film accumulates startling facts and asks the question, "What can we do?"
  • THE WORLD ACCORDING TO MONSANTO, Friday, November 28, 2014The World According to Monsanto is an in-depth look at the domination of the agricultural industry from one of the worlds most insidious and powerful companies. A bold, brilliant film and a definite must-see for anyone who is interested in learning more about the multi-billion dollar, omni-powerful, and highly dangerous Monsanto.
  • CHASING ICE, Friday, January 30, 2015Follow National Geographic photographer James Balog across the Arctic as he deploys time-lapse cameras designed for one purpose: to capture a multi-year record of the world's changing glaciers.

In keeping with our vision, the WRSJFS offers you the opportunity to view the selected films and to discuss the issues raised with fellow audience members and knowledgeable resource people. By raising social awareness and consciousness we hope to inspire individuals to action.

 

Our Society has created a DVD Library of films that have been screened in the past White Rock Social Justice Film Festivals or DVDs that have been reviewed by the committee but not shown publicly. The focus of the films is on environmental and social justice issues and we would like to share this information by loaning you DVDs from our library. We welcome you to join our Society for a membership fee of $5.00

 

Together we will create a better world.
