Building strong partnerships in and across KPU’s many communities was (and still is) a foundational goal of KDocs—that is, to be a documentary film festival that is not just faculty-driven with narrow goals, but also student-, staff-, alumni-, and community-driven, with a global-facing, social justice education mission rooted in student engagement.  We are extremely proud of the many connections and collaborations KDocs has initiated, built, and deepened, on campus and off.  We look forward to further engaging with and on behalf of Kwantlen’s many learners.

We gratefully acknowledge our partnership with the Vancouver International Film Centre and Vancity Theatre.
