Indigenous culture to be celebrated at film festival this weekend

The fourth annual Weengushk International Film Festival (WIFF), a celebration of Indigenous and diverse storytelling, kicked off Thursday, July 8.

The four-day festival runs until Sunday, July 11, and aims to present the highest quality films that emphasize Indigenous voices along with human rights, social and political issues, and the environment, while providing entertainment and an escape through film.

Along with purchasing tickets to stream specific films, participants in the Brock-sponsored event can also view filmmaker Q&As for free on the festival’s Youtube and Facebook pages.

The event is hosted by the Weengushk Film Institute (WFI) and was created by WFI founder and former Brock Chancellor Shirley Cheechoo.

A full schedule and tickets can be found on the WIFF website.
