- The powerful documentary Inequality for All was an unexpected hit at the recent Sundance film festival, arguing that US capitalism has fatally abandoned the middle classes while making the super-rich richer. Can its star, economist Robert Reich, do for economics what Al Gore did for the environment?
- Once you understand just how important wild salmon are to the entire ecosystem, you realize that what’s going on here goes far beyond just protecting a fish species. Without these salmon, the entire ecosystem will eventually fail, and in case you've have temporarily forgotten, you are part of this system...
- We all love food. As a society, we devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing nearly 50% of it in the trash? This seemingly insignificant issue is having devastating consequences around the globe.
- FORKS OVER KNIVES empowers people to live healthier lives by changing the way the world understands nutrition. It examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting animal-based and processed foods.
- Enjoy rare archival performances and poignant memories from the celebrated folk music trio, and from Pete Seeger, Richie Havens, and other famous friends. The trio were prolific political activists and the world needs them now as much - even more - than it needed them in the 60's.
We dedicate our films to the founder of the White Rock Social Justice Film Festival, Jack McLachlan, who passed
away Christmas morning, 2013. 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.
Please stay in touch with us on facebook.

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 is presently creating 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.
Please share, it helps.
