Aboriginal film festival

George Mackie Library is holding an Aboriginal Film Festival this Friday.

The festival, one of several being held throughout the Fraser Valley, is meant to bring awareness to aboriginal filmmaking, issues in the aboriginal community and to National Aboriginal Day (June 21).

The event will showcase the work of young aboriginal filmmakers from the Capilano College Indigenous Independent Digital Filmmaking program. Two filmmakers with films between five and twenty minutes in length will present their movies on leadership and hip hop culture – topics of interest to the aboriginal community and the community at large.

The festival, called Bridging Culture: Celebrating Aboriginal Communities in the Fraser Valley, takes place at George Mackie Library, 8440 112 St. in North Delta, on May 30, beginning at 10 a.m. Call 604-594-8155 for further information.
