The Festival of Moving Media has always been proud of its balance of grassroots action with international perspective, promoting community building, environmental and social justice issues, and championing the small stories that enrich our lives.
2014 promises to be a great year for the Festival of Moving Media. The focus will be on collaborations, both within the content of the films we choose and the relationships we build in the community. At the moment we have partnerships developed with five other festivals to create cross-promotional events, we are working with immigrant services to further develop their teen film series, and we are collaborating with the Ed Video Media Arts Centre to launch this year’s Hidden Histories project highlighting the best short films in the region. We are very proud of our mandate and the four days of films and workshops that make up our festival. This year we endeavor to look further afield for hidden treasures to diversify our programming. Be it documentaries or feature films, we bring new stories and ideas to the community, helping our small city feel connected to the world and each other.
