KDocsFF 2020 kicks off in February

Vancity Theatre20 Feb '20 to 23 Feb '20 @ 10:00 AM - 10:00 PM

    KDocsFF, Metro Vancouver’s premier social justice film festival, is back for 2020.

    The Kwantlen Polytechnic University-organized festival will screen 13 films, including eight Canadian features and a Canadian short, over four days in February. This year the theme is Truth in a Post-truth World.

    “All of the films deal with the issue of truth in some way, or the fight for truth, the drive to right a wrong, the fight to expose the truth, the fight against "alternative facts", the fight against anti-intellectualism - all of which happen in this current anti-media and anti-journalism climate,” says festival director Janice Morris.

    Morris says the theme is borrowed from the sub-title of one of the closing night films, Bellingcat: Truth in a Post-Truth World.

    Other films cover topics such as:

    • Climate change and environmental sustainability
    • Racism, abuse and violence
    • Prisoners’ rights and prison reform
    • Chemical toxicity
    • HIV/AIDS
    • Indigenous rights and governance
    • Global housing crisis
    • Whistleblowers

    Opening night will feature a Q&A talk with environmental activist David Suzuki. Other special guests at the festival include Kwantlen Nation Elder Lekeyten, Canadian Senator Kim Pate, Vancouver politician and housing activist Jean Swanson, international speaker Ellen Woodsworth, the Pooni sisters (the subject of one of the documentaries) and many more. The festival will also have over 30 exhibitors.

    The festival runs February 20 – 23, 2020, at the Vancity Theatre in Downtown Vancouver. Tickets are now on sale. For more information visit
