WaterDocs and ReSurge

In celebration of their 10th anniversary, WaterDocs has partnered with other notable film festivals and environmental organizations around Canada to voice concern for the climate crisis and promote awareness and climate action through film. The 10th anniversary film festival, ReSurge: Canadian Film Festivals for a Livable Climate will take place November 9 – 14, 2021 with live, virtual events. On-demand viewing will continue through November 30.

As a presenting partner, What About Water is proud to co-sponsor the ReSurge Indigenous Perspectives screening event on Wednesday, November 10 at 6pm CST. What About Water and our host institution, the Global Institute for Water Security at the University of Saskatchewan, acknowledge that we are on Treaty 6 Territory and the Homeland of the Métis. We pay our respect to the First Nations and Métis ancestors of this place and reaffirm our relationship with one another. What About Water is committed to sharing and elevating Indigenous perspectives as part of our mission to connect water science with the stories that bring us solutions, adaptations and action for the world’s water realities.
