Cinema Politica Yellowknife a not-for-profit organization that holds a monthly documentary film series exhibiting works relating to the environment, globalization, aboriginal rights, global health, human rights, labour, gender and sexuality, and culture. Emphasis is placed on works that tell stories underrepresented by mainstream media, including narratives around political struggles internationally and within Canada, stories that deal with oppression and a focus on artists who are marginalized and/or struggle against oppression in respective contexts.
The event seeks to connect our local community with independent film artists and Canadian works that are otherwise difficult for people in the region to access. Monthly screenings will aim to educate, entertain and especially inspire audiences to participate in thought provoking discussion in a safe, open and inclusive space.
Donations are most welcome and will be used to cover screening, licensing and shipping costs.
Be sure to look for posters, announcements, the Facebook group, and regularly check out the website for a schedule of upcoming screenings.
Cinema Politica is a grassroots network headquartered out of Montreal, that distributes and exhibits political independent documentaries at campuses and communities across Canada and internationally. Screenings are by-donation. Our national partner is CitizenShift. The Cinema Politica Network is also supported by the Canada Council for the Arts.
