Marda Loop Justice Film Festival


Years running: 17 (since 2006)

Marda Loop Justice Film Festival

International human rights documentary film festival.


The MLJFF is Canada's premiere human rights, environmental, and social issues documentary film festival. The Marda Loop Justice Film Festival hosts an annual mid-November festival, a Calgary film series, and a traveling Canadian film series to: 

  • Foster awareness and understanding of injustices and indignities suffered by many in our world and tell stories of hope in action;
  • Facilitate conversations around justice, views of the world, essential questions, and the greater common good;
  • Offer opportunities to get involved in the issues raised - primarily through the activities of local advocacy groups and non-government international development organizations.

In addition to free film screenings, the MLJFF also hosts a NGO village – a congregating place where non-profit organizations can discuss with festival attendees how to advance positive change.
