  • HOW TO START A REVOLUTION, Friday April 24th, 7pmHOW TO START A REVOLUTION is a portrait of how one man’s thinking has contributed to the liberation of millions of oppressed people living under some of the most brutal dictatorships in the world and how his work in direct action and civil disobedience continues to be used today to topple dictators using the sheer force of nonviolent people power.
  • TRICK OR TREATY, Friday May 29th, 7pmDirected by veteran artist-filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin, TRICK OR TREATY offers up a revealing and moving chronicle of a bold new social movement. A politically charged account of the past and present struggles faced by Canada’s Indigenous population, she plunges her camera into the daily grind of a small but forceful campaign, and gives those who refuse to surrender a chance to speak out.

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.
