Cinema Politica UofT is an initiative of Ontario Public Interest Research Group - Toronto (OPIRG Toronto). We screen films that challenge conventional narratives and that explore under-represented stories. Our film screenings aim to engage campusand the community in critical issues surrounding equity and environmental justice. We seek to accomplish this by following each screening with a discussion about how the content of the film relates to our own experiences and what action we can take collectively.
OPIRG Toronto is a volunteer-based group at the University of Toronto, with a mandate for action, education, and research on environmental and social justice issues. We are part of an international network of Public Interest Research Groups (PIRGs), including ten others in Ontario. We seek to empower and educate students and other members of the community, provide a forum for learning and sharing skills, and give people the tools and opportunity to work co-operatively for social change.
