KDocsFF 2022: Seeking Truth. Waging Change.

As Metro Vancouver's premier social justice film festival, KDocsFF celebrates the power of documentary film and documentary activism. Working with its Festival Partner, the Vancouver International Film Centre + Vancity Theatre, the annual KDocsFF film festival showcases award-winning documentary films, keynote speakers, filmmakers, panelists, exhibitors, performances, and community partners. Participants engage in lively discussions, debates, and dialogues as they investigate today's most pressing global issues.

KDocsFF proudly operates four engagement streams: our Annual Film Festival, our Year-round Program, our Community Outreach Program, and our YouTube Channel (“KDocs Talks”).

KDocsFF programming is all about engagement, critical thinking, and dialogue—amongst diverse viewers, speakers, and communities. Films are selected based on their ability to provoke, not just superficial reactions, but deeper awareness, connections, and collaborations—of/to/with ourselves, each other, and our communities. With these connections, KDocsFF, in turn, explores issues of social justice, anti-oppression, human and animal rights, equality, diversity, and sustainability, near and far, as we educate the leaders and change-makers of tomorrow. At KDocsFF, activism originates in the power of the individual, and the influence of the collaborative collective. Hopefully, our film and programming choices both give a voice—to filmmakers—and nurture a voice—of creative solution-building.

Territorial Acknowledgement

KDocsFF and Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) borrow their names from the Kwantlen First Nation. We work, study, and live in a region south of the Fraser River which overlaps with the unceded traditional and ancestral lands of the Kwantlen, Musqueam, Katzie, Semiahmoo, Tsawwassen, Qayqayt and Kwikwetlem peoples.
