The Hearts of Women (HOW), once again, hosted the Red Deer Justice Film Festival, Jan. 20 to 22, 2012, at the City Centre Stage.

Group members would like to take this opportunity to thank our generous sponsors, discussion leaders and our master of ceremonies.

We would also like to extend a warm thank you to the NGOs and all those who helped make this festival a success.

We were very pleased with the viewer turnout once again this year.

The quality documentaries offered fostered an increased awareness of global and local justice issues. Each film was followed by a short discussion to facilitate greater understanding.

This event is free to the public and all donations gratefully received at the festival go towards expenses for next year’s festival.

HOW is very proud to have had the opportunity to organize and sponsor this year’s film festival and looks forward to the Red Deer Justice Film Festival in mid-January 2013. Please join us next year as we “see hope in action.”
