Montréal Massacre Memorial Event to include my short film on “Friends of Rape Relief”

Each December, Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter remembers the Montréal Massacre and invites the public to participate in a day of action to end violence against women. I’m excited to announce that this year’s event will include the first public screening of my short documentary, “Men at Work: Fighting Sexism”, about the men who support Rape Relief by volunteering for their fundraising committee, “Friends of Rape Relief”. (It’s a group I am proud to have been a member of for 10 years now!) Based on interviews I conducted with several current and former volunteers, and including footage of our Walkathon, Tin Can street fundraisers and more, I think this 8-minute documentary does a good job of summarizing why we do this work – and maybe it will inspire others to do the same. I’ve worked very hard on it, and got lots of great support and feedback from the Collective at VRR – and I am very pleased with the result. “Men at Work: Fighting Sexism” screens alongside another film, “MACHO”, that profiles a group of men in Nicaragua who formed their own anti-sexist group. This screening runs from 12:30 to 1:45, and the event is held at the Main Branch of the Vancouver Public Library. Other events, screenings, and discussions will happen throughout the day from 10am to 6pm. You’ll find a full list of the events on the Rape Relief website. I hope you can come out for this free event, and hope to see you there!

  1. Yes, the Vancouver Rape Relief Collective is pleased to include this short film in our day of action on violence against women. This film itself was a collaboration between our collective and Adam that shows how men can practically support the leadership offered by our frontline group in the struggle to end all men’s violence against women. Hope to see many of Adam’s fans at the Memorial to the Montreal Massacre
