The Vancouver International Film Festival 4 Peace will be captivating Vancouver audiences for the 9th consecutive year. The film festival promotes peace through a unique collection of documentary and feature films. This annual festival brings the reality of war and occupation to the big screen, and brings to light the struggle for self determination and social justice being fought by hundreds of millions of people around the world. Year after year, the festival features films which span the world; from Latin America to Africa, from the Middle East to Asia, and from Europe to here in North America. Audiences will be taken back in time through historical classics, and will be some of the first to see new premieres.
 
This year we are pleased to host Saul Landau for the special workshop “Making a Documentary Film: A Master Class with Saul Landau” which will provide an exciting perspective from the esteemed filmmaker and showcase some of his memorable works. Saul Landau is an internationally renowned documentary filmmaker, scholar, author, and commentator, as well as a Professor Emeritus at California State University, Pomona, and a Senior Fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies at the Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism. Saul Landau has produced more than 40 films on social, political and historical issues, and worldwide human rights.
