The 7th annual Projecting Change Film Festival (PCFF) is back in full force to lead a series of exploration through internationally-acclaimed documentaries, youth-centric programming, and engaging workshops.
“This year’s Projecting Change will do more to focus on programming that will move our community towards positive growth,” says co-founder Brady Dahmer. “We decided to open with the film, INSIDE OUT this year because it’s a visual example of how an idea can inspire community’s to take action. Which is exactly what Projecting Change is all about.”
PCFF is Western Canada’s first docs and dialogues festival and has shown over 100 films since its inception in 2007. Guests are treated to a unique festival format that features award-winning films from around the globe, with dynamic speaker or panel discussions following each film. This year the festival has expanded its programming to include a full-day yoga urban retreat and a two-day Youth Day event that will feature a YELL Venture Challenge – a rare mentorship opportunity which offers youth the chance to witness young entrepreneurs present their business ideas to a panel of esteemed judges.
