BETTER CITIES FILM FESTIVAL + PROUD PLACES MONTHLY FILM SERIES: FEBRUARY


We've curated a special short film block in honor of Black History Month.


Our series leads off with the acclaimed Segregated By Design. Grand Price Winner of the 2020 Better Cities Film Festival, it's an epic, animated tour de force based on Richard Rothsteins’ The Color of Law. 


Also included are four other short film gems: 11th Street Bridge, Chocolate Spokes, Bike Arlington Nonie, and Urban Lament.


Watch all five shorts for a single ticket! Screening now, and through the entire month of February.

Blurring the lines between documentary and poetry, Urban Lament is a short experimental film exploring the impacts of architecture and gentrification on modern metropolitan neighbourhoods.

Shot in Toronto's East End and written by local poet T.C. Wilson, the trends documented in this film affect not only the artists' hometown but global societies at large.
