Generation Hope (35)
Midwest Premiere. Filmed & Produced in Malawi and the United States.
Filmed on location at Mary’s Meals’ projects in Malawi, Haiti and India, this uplifting film introduces us to members of what we call ‘Generation Hope’ – the group of young people who, having received Mary’s Meals in school, have gone on to further education or paid employment, something they insist would simply not have been possible without the support provided by the organisation.

The Pamoja Project (21)
World Premiere. Filmed & Produced in Tanzania and the United States.
The Pamoja Project is a short documentary film featuring the lives and work of Margaret, Astridah, and Crispina; three Tanzanian women who's leadership and compassion is changing the lives of those in their community. By focusing on the solutions, rather then the challenges, the film offers a look at real development and social change in Tanzania and aims to combat stereotypical narratives of Africa. In Swahili, the word pamoja means 'together,' reminding us that change is not one person, but a group of people united in love, working together. 

What It Takes to Be Extraordinary (52)
World Premiere. Filmed & Produced in Canada and Nepal.
Nepal is a tough place to be a child, yet there is a special home where children are free for the first time. Following one inspirational man & an extraordinary family of over 140 children. With freedom, leaders are born.
