WIAM - One World Film Festival



November 23, 2007

Back in October OpenConcept contributed a very small amount to the World Inter-Action Mondiale film festival here in Ottawa. It's a great festival highlighting all kinds of world issues. This year's focus was on First Peoples -- First Stories. Was great to see that our clients were also supporting this festival: Assembly of First Nations, Collected Works Bookstore & Coffeebar, Halifax Initiative, MiningWatch Canada, Octopus Books, and Oxfam Canada. Events like this don't happen without the hard work of a lot of volunteers. Looking forward to seeing what's on the 2008 lineup which will take place on Oct 29th to Nov 2nd at the Library and Archives Building.
