education and community building

“I want to see the rest of the films because of how empowering and truthful they have been.”

“Makes me want to do more about world issues.”

“It gives you new ideas, it’s tremendously inspiring. It can make you angry enough maybe to take some action. . . .The film festival gives people something in common, a common experience. We’re in an age of lack of hope, age of despair, and we need to see ourselves out on a film. We need to see what we can do and be reminded of what we can, be inspired to do these things.”

Quotes from 2008 Peterborough Film Festival

"To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness...

And if we do act, in however small a way, we don't have to wait for some grand utopian future.

The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory."

Howard Zinn
