This year’s 1-3 school program looks at the many types of friendship, from close schoolyard pals to people in different parts of the world who find understanding through the exchange of what some would call meaningless pieces of trash. This collection of films questions how different people interpret what it means to be a friend as well as to need a friend.

Each of the films in this year’s Grades 4-6 program explores the idea of what it means to be here in various different ways. What does it mean to be a child? A parent? A classmate? A neighbour? A citizen? The theme that unifies each of these pieces is that our experience of here — any here — is shaped by what we are willing to bring to it. As we discover in this program, here is a reflection of our hopes and desires but also, importantly, of our efforts.

When worlds collide, the results can be inspiring, curious or even tragic. These four films explore the consequences, both good and bad, of disparate forces coming together. In UNRESERVED, Native art merges with pop culture on the sneakers of a mixed-race artist. Second Hand finds a neat freak living next door to a hoarder couple. In House, a host and his visitors conflict over boundaries and borders. And in That Which Once Was, refugees from different sides of the world make an unexpected connection.
