FESTI-DOC is Coming to Glendon and to the National film Board


An exceptional selection of documentary films about “Community and Society” will be presented by the National Film Board of Canada during the Semaine de la Francophonie in Toronto, from March 24th to the 26th .

FESTI-DOC is an initiative of Glendon’s Sociology Club, in collaboration with the NFB and Glendon’s Department of Artistic and Cultural Affairs, a part of Student Services.

FESTI-DOC is intended to encourage dialogue between sociology and the documentary genre through inspiring and engaging films, chosen for their artistic excellence and original approach. Attendance will be free of charge.

These award-winning films deal with major social issues such as the family, delinquency, immigration and social conflicts. They represent an invitation for discussion on the art of documentary as research method or tool for social change.

Toronto cinematographers Martine Duviella, Ilan Saragosti and Nadine Valcin will be in attendance to present their films and answer questions at three exceptional screenings on March 24th , 25th and 26th .

The opening of FESTI-DOC will take place on March 24th at 2:00 p.m. at the NFB Cinema, 150 John St. Toronto (Osgoode Station).

Screenings on March 25th and 26th will be in Glendon Hall’s BMO Conference Room, on the Glendon campus.

Screenings are in the original French version and are open to the public. For a full listing, please visit: .
