The Journalism Film Festival

March 7 @ 8:00 am - June 6 @ 5:00 pm

If you appreciate journalism and like living in a democracy, The Journalism Film Festival is an opportunity for you to get together with like-minded people and celebrate the contribution that quality journalism makes in our lives….or it’s just a chance to get out of the house and watch a movie on a big screen.

We’ve partnered with local news outlets and others to assemble a terrific program!

Four films focusing on journalism: Each one screens at 7 p.m. on the first Tuesday of March, April, May and June at the Apollo Cinema in downtown Kitchener, Ontario. (For tickets, click on the film titles.)

  • March 7 — Writing with Fire — On the eve of International Women’s Day, we’re screening this documentary about Dalit women journalists in India. Introduced by CBC-KW. Book table by Words Worth Books.
  • April 4 — Whiskey Tango Foxtrot — Based on journalist Kim Barker’s memoir The Taliban Shuffle about her time covering war in Afghanistan, this movie serves up tragedy and comedy in good measure. Introduced by CTV Kitchener. 
  • May 2 — All the President’s Men — The classic film that inspired a generation of young journalists will be introduced by Jim Poling, editor-in-chief of the Waterloo Region Record. This screening takes place on the eve of World Press Freedom Day!
  • June 6 — Network — Filmed before the boom in cable news and rise of the internet, this movie is also a poignant critique of our “enragement-is-engagement” age. Introduced by Mike Farwell, CityNews
