Thanks so much to everyone who came out last night to celebrate the Toronto premiere of After the Last River with filmmaker Victoria Lean at the opening night gala of Planet in Focus Film Festival! It was a beautiful film with an emotional Q&A session with Lean and special guests from Attawapiskat – and a sold out theatre! Amy Millan of the band Stars was also in attendance to receive her Canadian Eco-Hero Award for her work with USC Canada’s I Am A Seed Saver Campaign! Beautiful photos courtesy of Toronto photographers Allan Lissner and Christian Peña.

Check out the rest of the festival lineup screening now through the weekend!
