Nanaimo Global Film Festival

Global Village Nanaimo is pleased to announce that they will be sponsoring 2 films that are being shown as part of the Global Film Festival on February 7 - 9, 2019.

The funds being used for this sponsorship were donated to Global Village Nanaimo in memory of long time supporter, Vilma Dube, who passed away in early 2018.

 Global Village Nanaimo will be offering several "Double Bill" passes for the combined showing of "Fertile Ground: Brewing Change in Northeast India" and " Cooperativa". These films are being shown at 3 pm on Saturday February 9 in Building 355 (Room 203) at Vancouver Island University.

Products will be available for sale, and there will be a short opportunity for discussion after the film as well.

A "Double Bill" pass will allow the ticket holder to either have 2 seats at this combined film showing, or a single seat at this film and at another film after this sponsored event.

Global Village Nanaimo has supported both of the coffee and tea suppliers that will be featured in these films by selling the products in their seasonal store.  Fair trade customers will have a rare opportunity to see behind the scenes and learn more about some of the specific fair trade products available in Nanaimo.

If you are interested in reserving a complimentary "Double Bill" pass for this film, being shown at 3 pm on Saturday February 9,   please send an email to with the name of the person who will be picking up the ticket at the venue.  Please do not request more than you need, so that we can ensure as many people as possible can attend
