Western screening Radio Canada contest finalists

A selection of immigration films from Radio Canada’s Migr@tions competition will be screened at The University of Western Ontario Thursday, Jan. 22.


The films in Radio Canada’s Migr@tions competition have been entered by filmmakers from 22 countries across five continents. To date, the 80 online films and 11 podcasts have been viewed by tens of thousands of people around the world.


The event is jointly sponsored by Western’s Centre for Research on Migration and Ethnic Relations, which connects graduate students, faculty, policy makers, and community stakeholders to study issues around migration, ethnic relations, cultural diversity, and the integration of migrants in Canada and internationally, and promotes multidisciplinary perspectives, and Radio Canada International.


The finalists’ films are being screened in a number of cities across Canada and abroad, and the Centre for Research on Migration and Ethnic Relations has partnered with Radio Canada to enable this screening at Western.


The films will be screened 4:30-6:30 p.m. in Room 2202, Spencer Engineering Building and is open to the public. Admission is free and parking is available at Alumni Thompson Lot (near Alumni Hall and Thompson Arena) for a $5 flat rate.
