The Diversity and Inclusion Film Festival (DIFF) bring stories from various places around the world to us right here at Queen’s University. The SGPS Diversity and Inclusion Film Festival and the World Link program at QUIC have come together to bring the second edition of our annual film festival for graduate students, staff, and faculty promoting diversity and inclusion at Queen’s campus. The festival will be spread over several days, each evening includes a film screening from a featured country, and the screening will be accompanied by food, music and facilitated discussions from local and international students. Come join us in celebrating the diverse voices on our campus as graduate students from all over can come to together to tell and listen to stories.
For this edition of DIFF, we’ll be watching Indian Horse, a new movie that was recently screened at Toronto Film Festival and has received 8 wins and 5 nominations. The movie follows the life of Canadian First Nations boy, Saul Indian Horse, as he survives residential schooling and life amongst the racism of the 1970s. A talented hockey player, Saul must find his own path as he battles stereotypes and alcoholism. Snacks and beverages will be served.
