Celebrating Female Filmmakers

2019 ZONTA Film Festival

The ZONTA Film Festival (ZFF) showcases courageous, powerful and though-provoking films that are directed and produced by women.

During the 2019 festival, we were able to provide 50 students with festival passes to view a series of documentaries and films to continue to spark creativity amongst our youth in Waterloo Region.

Princess Cinemas, Waterloo, ON

My Point of View

It’s not every day that you get to work on a community landmark and bring it back to life. This is not just a building, it’s symbol of the hard working Hespeler people and has always been a source of community pride. So glad to play a role in preserving it for another 100 years.

We just opened an event space and business called Tapestry Hall in The Gaslight District, Cambridge. As you can imagine, times are tough in the event business! Here’s how our great team responded: Events cancelled or postponed, food ordered. Instead of being negative and doubtful of the future, our team is stable and looking at what they can do to make a difference. They donated our food inventory to the Waterloo Region Food Bank.

'Let’s try to make sure nobody goes hungry this year': Cambridge and North Dumfries go all in on food bank donations

This season, the food bank and its partners will help put food on the table for more than 1,600 individuals and families across Cambridge and North Dumfries, as well as assist 20 other community organizations, said food bank executive director Cameron Dearlove.
