KDocs | KPU Documentary Film Festival
KDocs is KPU’s official documentary film festival. KDocs launches on October 5, 2014, with its inaugural event, in partnership with the Vancouver Film Festival (VIFF): a screening of The Price We Pay, with special guest, the film’s director, Harold Crooks. With The Price We Pay, Crooks, best known for The Corporation and, most recently, Surviving Progress, blows the lid off the dirty world of corporate malfeasance with this incendiary documentary about the dark history and dire present-day reality of big-business tax avoidance, which has seen multinationals depriving governments of trillions of dollars in tax revenues by harbouring profits in offshore havens.
With the generous support of our sponsors, the event takes place one month after the world premiere for The Price We Pay as follows:
|Sunday, October 5, 2014 | Vancity Theatre | 1181 Seymour Street, Vancouver, BC (MAP)|
|4:00 - 4:30 pm||Welcome Reception|
|4:30 - 6:15 pm||Opening remarks and film screening: The Price We Pay|
|6:15 - 7:00 pm||Q&A with Director, Harold Crooks|
|7:00 - 8:00 pm||Stand-up dinner reception with Director, Harold Crooks|
Registration is free for all KPU students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members, but you must pre-register, as seats are limited.
