The Foundation’s latest partnership unfolds at The University of Waterloo Stratford Campus on May 23rd .
Now in its’ 4th year, SOCDOCS Documentary Film Festival celebrates and enriches young filmmakers in their pursuit to creatively promote equality, democracy, and solidarity for a just, peaceful and compassionate society.
