2015 Program

PJAC Film Festival

3rd Annual London Prisoners’ Justice Film Festival

Continue to check back here as we confirm additional events! All screenings are free (though donations will be accepted to cover costs). The festival takes place on the lands of the Haudenosaunee, Anishinaabek, Huron-Wendat, and Attawandaron Peoples. All events are free (donations welcome), wheelchair accessible, and scent-reduced—please do not use or wear scented products, including essential oils. We are working hard to ensure we have ASL and that films are closed captioned. Please email us should you have any questions about this.  Additional details about childcare and accessibility will be posted as the festival nears. Please contact us (PJFFLondon@gmail.com) with any questions or concerns regarding accessibility.
