Thank you for making this Film Festival a huge success!

The 9th Annual Global Voices Film Festival has come to an end, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who joined us for the powerful, and very “thought provoking” international documentaries screened during the two weekends.

We were very happy with the strong turn out on both weekends. The documentaries screened on the first weekend: Sutura, Democracy in Dakar, and Little Town of Bethlehem teleported us into regions of Africa, and the Middle East, shedding light on some of the very critical issues faced by the people in the region.

On the second weekend of the Film Festival; Countdown to Zero exposed us to one of the greatest fears faced by many: the of the possibility of a nuclear disaster, and Sneak peek of Cape Wind gave us a better understanding of the drama associated with the fight over Cape Wind.

The panel discussions that followed the screenings were very much appreciated by all the participants, and we would also like to take this opportunity to thank our panelists for joining us, and providing our film festival with a whole new meaning.

Thank you for our fabulous sponsors:

We also appreciate the work and dedication of our Film Festival Committee, who spent hours selecting films, contacting film makers and panelists, and drumming up support!:
