Can a film change your perspective?


I hope so! One of my “passion projects” is the Zonta Film Festival and it’s happening right now at the Princess Twin in Uptown Waterloo.  I love watching incredible films that make you think differently and motivate activism.

We have five incredible films this year that meet two simple criteria. The documentaries are made by women and must focus on women’s rights and or human rights. In three years, we have raised nearly $25,000 for local women’s charities, and over 1,500 people have attended our film festival. The Film Festival continues to grow with the support of our great sponsors: BMO, Lexington Park, and Heffner Toyota and The Waterloo Region Record.

The Film Festival is run by the Zonta Club of K-W, which is a group of awesome ladies that volunteer countless hours to make it a success. Cheers to the ZFF committee!

Hope to see you tonight.
