Trailer Viewing Event
The MLJFF recently held our annual trailer viewing event for volunteers to view film trailers for the 2019 Festival. This was an opportunity to introduce the films to everyone involved, and to share ideas about the upcoming 2019 Festival.
2019 Festival dates
We are pleased to announce the dates of the 2019 Marda Loop Justice Film Festival. This years festival will be taking place from November 12-17. We hope to see you there!
The Marda Loop Justice Film Festival is proud to be zero-waste
We started the zero-waste initiative in 2018. Food is served in compostable containers and we offer cups and cutlery that can be washed and reused. Festival attendees are encouraged to bring their own water bottles, which can be filled on-site. Compostable cups are also available for coffee and tea while coffee grounds and tea bags are composted. Our local sponsor, Forage, donates the food we serve and delivers it in chafing dishes that can be reused. Clean up is done with reusable cloth rags and compostable paper towels. These steps all contribute to the Marda Loop Justice Film Festival being an environmentally conscious and sustainable organization. We are proud to be zero-waste, and we are excited to see how this continues to evolve!
