Water Docs Film Festival – runs until March 24, 2019 (Toronto)
Now in its eighth year, Water Docs Film Festival runs until March 24, 2019 is where to see films about our most precious resource, H2O (water). There are short and feature films with incredible cinematography, passionate filmmakers in attendance and on panel discussions as well as informative speakers.
You would think that the fact that we humans are 83% water in our bodies, that we would respect and understand how to care for, clean, distribute, and share this vital element easily. The fact that our Earth is in trouble means we really have to pay attention, and the films shown here are a great way to learn more.
We all need to celebrate this mystical life giving important part of our material universe. Through humour, facts and stories, we are entertained and come away with a newfound respect for the simple and powerful water on our planet. There are lively Q&A discussions with many experts and filmmakers. Everyday people doing their part to become educated and take action are plentiful at this festival, creating a positive vibe of hope for a global issue.
I personally learned not to take water for granted, which is so easy to do in our metropolis. An easy ritual was taught at the first screening on March 20 at Evergreen Brickworks. Every morning gaze into the water you are about to drink, take a moment to thank this magical force that we are made up of and require to sustain life. Be grateful.
For the love of water come out, celebrate,m and be part of this beautiful festival.
