Water Docs
is a documentary film festival about all things water. From March 21-24, 2013 at Jackman Hall in Toronto’s Art Gallery of Ontario, it’s your chance to see both feature and short films about water, and discuss the films with the director or others. Not only does the festival inform and educate about water and water issues, it provides a forum for discussions as well as a channel for action provided by our guest speakers and featured environmental organisations. So, for the love of water, come join us!

Ecologos

Most sessions have a feature film, one or two short films, a speaker or two, and a related environmental NGO.
