Activist Film Collective Meet and Greet
For anyone interested in getting involved and helping shape the Activist Film Collective from the ground up - a new initiative that has emerged out of an event organized in December 2023, an in-person screening of Three Promises by Yousef Srouji. Next up: an online screening of the same, and beyond!

About the event
We will have our first meet and greet for Activist Film Collective on February 20th at 6pm. The meeting will take place through Zoom. Please RSVP to receive the zoom invite. This meeting is for anyone interested in joining The Activist Film Collective, a new St. John’s based film screening collective. The goal of the group is to amplify the work of marginalized film-makers and to bring people together around issues of social justice, systemic oppression, and collective liberation!
We recently hosted our first ever event, a screening of Three Promises by Yousef Srouji in St. John’s, at Memorial University. There were 25 attendees and the film was followed by a panel discussion. There was a lot of positive feedback around this event, with a demand for an online showing. Our intention is to meet that demand by showing Three Promises online, which would be available to anyone in NL.
If you'd like to help shape this new film screening collective from the ground up, learn more about helping out, suggest a film for screening, or just see what the group is all about, this meet and greet is for you! All are welcome. No particular experience expected.
