In celebration of the Water Docs 10th anniversary, the ReSurge Festival opened with a week of live streamed events. We’d like to thank our host, Rick Miller and our presenting partners, Hot Docs, What About Water?, the Guelph Film Festival, the Ontario Water Works Association (Toronto Student Chapter), the BANFF World Media Festival and the Vancouver Shorts Film Festival. It is with their support that ReSurge: Canadian Film Festivals for a Liveable Climate was introduced to Canada and abroad.
With a focus on water and climate protection, together we watched some of the most moving and impactful environmental documentaries from around the world – many of which had their Canadian premieres with us! Each live stream concluded with an engaging filmmaker discussion that we hope inspired our viewers.
