Last night, November 6th, at the Planet in Focus Film Festival opening night, it was announced that York University will be receiving the fond from Planet in Focus. This fond will include films and archival papers, and we will know more once negotiations are complete.
And, as a bonus, we were privy to the presenting of the Mark Haslam award to Ms. Alanis Obomsawin, who has directed many important documentaries, including “Kanehsatake: 270 Years of Resistance”. Ms. Obomsawin offered some remarks.
All this followed by a screening of Monsoon! An exciting evening. See the trailer below, the film will be released widely in a month or so.
