Just found out about this:
The Commfest Community Film Festival is happening today until Sunday at Rainbow Cinema, 80 Front Street East. Here's the description from the website:
"COMMFFEST Community Film Festival is a registered charitable organization, combining public exhibits with forums for individuals and communities to engage in a dialogue of social issues and cultural exchange through the powerful language of film in all genres.
COMMFFEST showcases a wide variety of local, national, and international films. Its main objective is to bring communities together to increase awareness and understanding that we are more alike than not. Each film represents a voice to share experiences, educate others on their struggles, and discover common bonds of solidarity."
The films (which tend to be on the short side) are grouped into a number of series and tickets for each series are $9.
