KDocs 2017 invites you to join in a celebration of thought-provoking storytelling in film.

More than a documentary film festival, this event hosted by Kwantlen Polytechnic University brings people together around films to spark community engagement and dialogue on critical issues of social justice, be they local, regional, or global.

Working in partnership with the Vancouver International Film Centre/Vancity Theatre, KDocs showcases award-winning documentary films, keynote speakers, filmmakers, panelists, exhibitors, and community members. Participants engage in lively discussion, debate, and dialogue as they investigate today’s most pressing global issues.

When: February 16-19, 2017
Where: Vancouver International Film Centre/Vancity Theatre
Program: A full schedule of films, keynote speakers, and discussions is on the KDOCS 2017 site.
