Nations and Migrations

Nations & Migrations is a special program of film screenings and discussions that will explore the themes of home, nationhood and belonging while tackling contemporary issues concerning immigration, pluralism and self-determination.

First Peoples, First Screens

February 08, 2016 - May 31, 2016

First Peoples, First Screens celebrates and showcases the incredibly diverse, rich and provocative creativity currently exploding in Indigenous media arts in Canada. A selection of 20+ cinematic works tours across Turtle Island from February to May 2016, screening on campuses and in communities from coast to coast to coast.

Cinema Politica partners up with Sofia International Film Festival to present EVERYDAY REBELLION, BORN IN GAZA, ON THE BRIDE'S SIDE, THE PRICE WE PAY & GULABI GANG at SIFF 2015.

Divine Interventions: Documentary, Spirituality and Social Justice explores the intersection of social justice and spirituality in documentary cinema. As a sidebar program of documentary screenings, the project looks at the roles spirituality, religion and secularism play in fostering or inhibiting a plurality of perspectives, as well as understanding across cultural, religious, and ethnic borders, and lastly participation in social causes, campaigns and movements.

While documentary is in itself an art form, often called "informational art," documentaries that focus on other art forms or artists working in various art milieus are uniquely positioned as works that examine art via art. With this special selection of films we celebrate the impulse to make art about art.
