Films that inspire: Watch and discuss

Community Shift for Social Change film series takes place Oct. 18 at the City Centre Library in Surrey.

Surrey Libraries presents the Community Shift for Social Change film series on Oct. 18 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at City Centre Library, 10350 University Drive.

Two documentary films, Rafea: Solar Mama and Revolutionary Optimists, will be screened. They focus awareness on issues of social exclusion, but also inspire hope by showing how social entrepreneurship can empower people.

Both films will be preceded by short films, and will be followed by opportunities for discussion and connection.

Doors open at 11 a.m., with light refreshments, and films start at 12 and 2 p.m.

The film series is in partnership with The Dr. Ambedkar Federation, Village Surrey Transition Initiative and the Surrey Urban Farmers Market.

To register or for more information, call 604-598-7426 or visit www.surreylibraries.ca
