The 11th Annual Urban Issues Film Festival will be held on Friday, November 4th from 3:00 to 9:00 p.m. in a new venue for us -- the Management Building (Building 250) on the bottom floor (Room 125) of Nanaimo's VIU campus.

As our tentative keynote speaker for the Annual Don Stone Lecture on Urban Planning and Design, we have Marcia Nozick, founder and CEO of EMBERS, the Eastside Movement for Business and Economic Renewal Society in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. She has won three awards for her innovative work, and her organization offers people assistance in setting up businesses, a temporary (non-exploitative) labour program, and an energy retrofitting business providing jobs to the hard to employ.
