DOXA is presented by the Documentary Media Society, a Vancouver based non-profit, charitable society devoted to presenting independent and innovative documentaries to Vancouver audiences. The society exists to educate the public about documentary film as an art form through DOXA Documentary Film Festival, a curated and juried festival comprised of public screenings, panel discussions, public forums and educational programs. The 2011 DOXA Documentary Film Festival runs from May 6 to May 15, so consider DOXA for your next film. Might I suggest Raw Opium?

If human rights, drug policy, harm reduction, and the war on drugs are topics that interest you, don't miss out on the world premiere of Raw Opium. The screening takes place this Saturday May 7, 12:00pm at Pacific Cinematheque (1131 Howe St) followed by a post-screening discussion with Rebecca Ambrose, owner of the Vancouver Seed Bank; Dr. Ronald Joe, Medical Manager for Inner City Addiction with Vancouver Coastal Health; and Peter Findlay, filmmaker.
