Humainologie Film Fest

Join us May 16 and 17, 2018 at the Globe Cinema in Calgary for Humainologie’s 3rd Annual Film Festival.

This year, we are sharing two evenings of film that allow us to step into the shoes of others and share our human stories; that stimulate empathy, encourage inclusivity and respect for all humans; and that promote the recognition of our shared humanity.

Wednesday, May 16, 6.30 – 8.30PM | Selected Shorts by Humainologie and other filmmakers from around the world followed by feature film: Rupa’s Boutique

Thursday, May 17, 6.30 – 8.30PM | Selected Shorts by Humainologie and other filmmakers from around the world followed by feature film: The World Is My Country

Beer, wine and concession will be available on both nights both before and after the screenings. Doors open at 6PM. Screening begins promptly at 6.30PM. 

Wednesday, May 16: Transfiguration
We are using the term ‘transfiguration’ to mean changing the form of something; often a challenge, trauma, injustice – into an opportunity, a thing of beauty, an opening. (Total run time approx. 90 mins)

Thursday, May 17: Questioning Barriers
Barriers exist in our hearts, minds, beliefs, laws. Sometimes they serve an important or beneficial purpose. Other times, they may serve to isolate us, to cut us off from each other, to preserve something we do not want to share causing others to suffer.
(Total run time approx 100 mins)

What's Your story?

Everyday, all the time, we are all playing key roles in our corners of the world. A moment of eye contact, a smile, an extra question like "so how are you?", a pause to hold the door open, a few words to validate how someone is feeling...there are things we can do all the time to remind each other we belong, we are valued, we are part of this great and diverse human family. Tell us about something small or big that you did, or that happened to you, where the result was a sense of connection, belonging, or the recognition of our shared humanity.
