“Film is one of the three universal languages, the other two: mathematics and music.”
~ Frank Capra ~
“Film as dream, film as music. No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls.”
~ Ingmar Bergman ~

Water Docs 2018 is a wrap!

See you next festival, but here's a small taste from this year...

The Water Docs Film Festival shows outstanding films and exhibits on issues facing water systems and the people who live in them here and around the world. After each screening there were lively Q&A sessions with filmmakers, activists, artists, experts and other related speakers. Our community partners shared ways to get involved.

The festival is the joint effort of many great volunteers, partners, donors and supporters. Thanks to everyone who attended and to everyone who helped make it happen! Click here if you are interested in volunteering to help plan our work and next year's festival! If you missed the free World Water Day Celebration on March 22, click for a sample of what fracking is all about and how bad it is for our water systems.

And consider holding a Water Docs Where-You-Live event in your community, with a film and discussion.

Festival films covered the gamut of water issues, explored some possibilities for action, and celebrated the joy of water in our lives in a myriad of ways. We inaugurated the Water Warrior Award, with Maude Barlow taking the honours for her passionate and tireless work for water over the years.

Of note, this year nearly all of our films were submitted, so if you're a filmmaker who is working on a film about water, you can submit for next year's festival starting in July. Keep an eye on our Film Freeway profile for announcements about the 2019 Water Docs Film Festival.

For more of a taste, check out the films and our social media. And watch the trailer below for a tiny sample of the films we screened.
