The Global Justice Film Festival is a coalition of organizations and individuals who support a better vision for our world. Our purpose is to call together people who are curious about and/or committed to the care of creation and the necessity for global peace and justice. We seek to engage people in dialogue and information sharing through the use of films, displays, and music. We believe that another world is possible and act to make it so.
The 2013 festival will be the 11th year that we have organized the Global Justice Film Festival. This year the entire festival is taking place at the University of Winnipeg campus at 515 Portage Avenue in Winnipeg.
