As part of programming for Orange Shirt Day, the Indian Residential School History and Dialogue Centre at UBC has held film screenings to support teaching and learning about the colonial history and ongoing impacts of the Indian Residential School System. Some of the films we have screened have been in partnership with the National Film Board (NFB) of Canada. Our film screenings are followed by a dialogue and discussion about the film.

Warning: Content in the following films can be distressing and may cause difficult emotions, such as sadness and anger. Wellness supports will be on site at all screenings. Also, the Indian Residential School Survivors Society operates a 24 hour Crisis Line: 1-866-925-4419.
