The MUFF Society

A feminist community that celebrates women in film/TV.

The MUFF Society is a feminist screening series and community based in Toronto that aims to champion women in film both on and off screen. We do this through a variety of initiatives, including a short film program (miniMUFF), conversation series (Reel Girl Talk), documentary series (HER-Story), and blog.

HER-Story: Migrant Dreams

  • Imagine Carlton Cinema 20 Carlton Street Toronto, ON, M5B 2H5 Canada (map)

Lobby | 6:00PM
Opening Remarks | 6:30PM
Screening | 6:35PM
Q&A | 8:30PM

HER-STORY is back for our second round of women-powered documentary cinema. The focus of this screening is migrant and refugee cinema in Canada. 

We are pleased to announce our feature presentation, MIGRANT DREAMS (2016), lead by award winning director Min Sook Lee and producer Lisa Valencia-Svensson. Both will be in attendance for a Q&A along with our short presentation director and activist, Leila Almawy (CONSTANT REFUGEE). 

What makes MIGRANT DREAMS so perfect for HER-STORY is that it focuses on the courage and determination of female migrant workers and the atrocities they face working in Ontario, Canada. Representatives from Migrante Canada and Caregivers' Action Centre will also be there to share their stories from the ground level and discuss how you can get involved.
