We stand in solidarity

The Cinematheque stands in solidarity with those fighting against racism and for justice, equity, and meaningful change. We have always believed in the importance of presenting a diversity of programming by a diversity of artists, and we will continue to support and amplify the voices of Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour filmmakers by investing in their work and making it accessible to our communities.

But we must, all of us, do better.

A good place to start is by learning about Hogan's Alley and watching the short film Secret Vancouver: Return to Hogan's Alley.

We also recommend you make it a priority to delve into the National Film Board of Canada’s collection of films by award-winning Black filmmakers, creators, and allies of the Black community, detailing a rich history to better understand the present. You can find the collection of films, all available to watch online, here.
