The following shorts were curated to round out the Canadian Change Makers program and highlight diverse perspectives coast to coast. The individuals and communities woven through each of the films in the collection explores the relationships and connections we make with ourselves, with one another, and with the environments that make us all a part of the common thread of the whole — as witnessed through a filmmaker’s lens.

Periphery is an evocative short documentary that explores ethnic diversity in the Jewish community in Canada through dance, poetry, and personal narratives. Following 10 Jews of Black/African, Korean, Iraqi, Indian, and South American ancestry, the film challenges perceptions of who is a Jew, exploring ideas of representation, intersectionality, race, and sexuality. Periphery invites us to appreciate the richness of Jewish identity and cultural expression while also illustrating what it feels like to grapple with a sense of belonging and to seek recognition within one’s own ethnic community.
