The Concordia Film Festival is considered the largest student-run film festival in Canada, as well as the oldest running university film fest in North America. This five-day event will offer all Concordia students an opportunity to exhibit their moving image work in a professional festival environment. We’ll also be hosting a screening of films made by the Wapikoni Mobile to promote Indigenous cultures on campus, a special presentation that we will present in partnership with Concordia’s School of Community and Public Affairs. For the second year in a row, we will also showcase a special presentation named VISIONS dedicated to present films made by LGBTQIA+ filmmakers and filmmakers of color. We will also have a discussion panel in partnership with the Women Filmmaker Society on gender diversity in the film industry.
