Our inaugural event was introduced by longtime Canadian activist, founding publisher of rabble.ca, and author of Occupy This!, Judy Rebick. Attendees were then treated to a presentation of shorts by filmmakers Velcrow Ripper, Ian MacKenzie, and Nova Ami from their feature-length documentary Occupy Love, which premiered the following evening at the Vancouver International Film Festival. This presentation was titled, ‘The Evolution is Love’.
Following the presentation there was a panel discussion featuring indie journalist David P. Ball, rabble.ca’s Derrick O’Keefe, and Dr. Kathleen Cross from SFU’s School of Communication talking about the challenges of documenting the Occupy movement.
