about cinema politica Fredericton

Cinema Politica Fredericton screens weekly documentaries to inform and engage audiences on important socio-political, cultural, environmental and economic issues. The films will take us to places such as Afghanistan, Palestine, Haiti, Guatemala and indigenous territories in this country where Canadian policies are leaving an impact worthy of deeper critical examination, analysis and discussion.

The films will be screened on Fridays during the university semesters at 7:00 PM and will be followed by a discussion at approximately 8:30 PM. The films are free. Donations are encouraged to cover screening costs and to fund local organizing efforts committed to positive social change. All are welcome.
