2016 Program


4th Annual London Prisoners’ Justice Film Festival

Please don’t forget to donate!!

From March 12th-19th, 2016 we will be hosting London, Ontario’s 4th Annual Prisoners

Justice Film Festival (PJFF).

The Prison Industrial Complex (PIC) is increasingly used to deal with social and economic problems, by criminalizing communities impacted by poverty, racism, colonialism, sexism, homophobia, and ableism. Please join us to learn, discuss, and strategize about resistance to the PIC, both locally and globally.

Continue to check back here as we confirm additional events! All screenings are free (though donations will be accepted to cover costs). The festival takes place on the lands of the Haudenosaunee, Anishinaabek, Huron-Wendat, and Attawandaron Peoples. All events are free (donations welcome), wheelchair accessible, and scent-reduced—please do not use or wear scented products, including essential oils. We are working hard to ensure we have ASL and that films are closed captioned. Please email us should you have any questions about this.  Additional details about childcare and accessibility will be posted as the festival nears. Please contact us (PJFFLondon@gmail.com) with any questions or concerns regarding accessibility.
