About the Festival

The Nanaimo Global Film Festival features stories about people around the world who are re-inventing their world and their future.

The films are a celebration of activism. All over the world, and right here on Vancouver Island and BC, hope shines through in action taken by ordinary people who are finding a way to a sustainable world by daring to confront global forces with the strength of their own vision.

The Nanaimo Global Film Festival Group is a central Vancouver Island coalition of peace and social justice groups interested in screening films about the world situation and the Canadian context. Members of the NGFF believe a better world is possible and that ordinary people need better information about the world and its systems.
