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.
We’ll be continuing the DIFF festival with an evening on Monday, October 22nd, 2018 from 5-8pm where we explore Indian culture in the Queen’s University International Centre (QUIC). We’re going to be watching a movie called “Rang De Basanti” (2006) which means “The Colour of Sacrifice”, and it follows the story of a British woman, whose grandfather was a police officer in India. She visits India with the goal of making a documentary around famous freedom fighters – Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekhar Azad and their contemporaries. She meets six young men who assist her in filming and reliving the saga of freedom. Along with the movie, we will have a musical performance before the film and we’ll be serving refreshments – Chai (Indian Tea), Samosa and Authentic Indian Sweets.
Come join us for Day 2 of DIFF and stay tuned for upcoming movie screenings!
