about cinema politica Charlottetown

The Cinema Politica Charlottetown collective includes several Island groups working for environmental and social justice - Cooper Institute, Sierra Club (PEI), CUPE PEI Global Justice Committee, Citizens' Alliance of PEI, Island Peace Committee, WUSC, UPEI Environmental Society, Council of Canadians PEI Chapter, and University of Prince Edward Island faculty, staff, and students. Various other organizations have hosted film screenings with us.

Our mandate is to select films that offer critical reflection and commentary within our community and to create opportunities for dialogue; selecting films that deepen analysis, discourse, and hopefully inform action on local concerns but also that connect our experiences here to broader global analyses. We create opportunities for people to connect with local organizations that share those concerns and are working to address change.

Local Co-Sponsors: Cooper Institute, Sierra Club (PEI), CUPE PEI Global Justice Committee, Citizens' Alliance of PEI, Island Peace Committee, WUSC, UPEI Environmental Society, Council of Canadians PEI Chapter
