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’re going to be watching “I Wish,” a film by the Japanese master Hirokazu Kore-eda that is built around performances by two real-life brothers who are as spirited and lovable despite their parents’ separation which have led to them living in different towns. This movie takes you to two cities in Japan and captures what feels like effortless joy in the lives of the two brothers. Snacks and beverage will be served.
