There will always be a need for documentary because that’s the best gun that exists.
— Canadian documentarian Alanis Obomsawin

KDocs programming is all about engagement, critical thinking, and dialogue—amongst diverse viewers, speakers, and communities. Films are selected based on their ability to provoke, not just superficial reactions, but deeper connections—to ourselves, each other, and our communities. With these connections, KDocs in turn seeks to explore issues of social justice and sustainability, near and far, as we educate the leaders and change-makers of tomorrow. At KDocs, activism originates in the power of the individual, and the influence of the collective. Hopefully, our film choices both give a voice—to filmmakers—and nurture a voice—of creative solution-building.
