Winnipeg’s annual Global Justice Film Festival is proud to be celebrating its tenth anniversary with screenings of over twenty films about social justice and local and international development on November 2 and 3, 2012 at the University of Winnipeg.

The Canadian and international films include winners of numerous international awards (Clean Bin Project, SpOil, Louder Than a Bomb, Dirt!

“To celebrate our 10th anniversary, we are offering a free screening of I AM by Tom Shadyac (director of blockbusters such as Ace Ventura, Liar Liar and Bruce Almighty) on the Friday night” says Janice Hamilton, Executive Director of the Manitoba Council for International Cooperation and Co-chair of the Global Justice Film Festival Steering Committee. “We are thrilled to announce that all the seats have already been reserved for the Friday night screening.
