DIVERSITY FILM FESTIVAL

September 7, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - September 13, 2020 @ 6:00 pm

Join us for our first-ever Diversity Film Festival from September 7th to 13th, as we stream films that showcase the struggles of marginalised individuals, their resistance to systemic oppression and injustices, and their fight in creating a world where every individual experiences freedom, respect, and consideration.

The films will be streamed on Zoom followed by a 30-min discussion round where we will explore ways to inculcate what we learn into our activism to make it more effective.
