The Hearts of Women (HOW) recently hosted the 6th annual Red Deer Justice Film Festival, from Jan. 24 to 26 at the Margaret Parsons Theatre in Red Deer College.

We sincerely thank our generous sponsors and each of the excellent discussion facilitators. Thank you, also, to everyone who attended their films of interest, the participation, written feedback and the very generous donations; these donations are an investment in next year’s festival.

We also want to extend a warm thank you to the NGOs who set up their display each day and Red Deer College for the venue.

The documentaries provided an opportunity for increased awareness of a variety of global and local justice issues. Each film was followed by a short discussion to facilitate greater understanding and has sparked new interest and action has been encouraged.

HOW is very pleased to offer Red Deer and area this opportunity to become more informed global citizens.

We again look forward to hosting next year’s Justice Film Festival, in mid-January 2015.
