IDRF is proud to be the charity partner of the Syria Film Festival (SYFF) 2015.
SYFF is an annual non-profit film festival run by dedicated volunteers, aims to give a voice to the brave filmmakers. They often risk their lives and sometimes even the lives of those they love to capture important footage and document stories that would otherwise never reach the public.
SYFF’s vision is to showcase the aspirations and convey the struggles of Syrians, to build bridges, inspire conversations and engage audience in thoughtful debates on social justice, human rights and global citizenship. They strive to support young talents in film and arts and enrich Toronto’s vibrant multicultural identity.
The festival will take place on November 13-15, 2015, in Toronto at the Art Gallery of Ontario.
