SFU Surrey hosts Alone Together film festival

Free event features screenings on Saturday and Sunday.

This weekend, SFU Public Square invites the public to come and escape into the world of film.

The Alone Together Film Festival will feature movies that probe the issues of isolation and disconnection in our urban environment – the things that bring us together and the things that push us apart.

The festival opens on Saturday, Sept. 22, 7-9 p.m. with An Evening Tribute to Shorts  – a collection ranging from animation and experimental to documentary and narrative – films that explore the nuances of belonging, migration, identity, and human connection.

On Sept. 23, 2-4 p.m., it’s Sunday afternoon at the Cinema highlighting the feature-length documentary This Space Available, which explores how billboards and commercial advertisements dominate our public space, and One Voice, a short music video that demonstrates the power of music as a connecting force.

Held at the Westminster Savings Credit Union theatre at SFU Surrey (near the Surrey Central Skytrain station), the festival will connect film buffs and community activists with students and newcomers.

Admission is free, and seats will be available on a first come, first served basis.

Westminster Savings Credit Union Theatre, is located at SFU Surrey at 13450 102 Ave.
