SCREENINGS

Throughout the past year, The Shadow of Gold has screened at many events around the world, like the Inhorgenta Jewellery Fair in Munich and the Colorado Environmental Film Festival

During 2020-2021, we arranged many screenings in mining-affected communities and with educators across Canada in collaboration with Mining Watch Canada. In response to Covid restrictions, several had to be presented through virtual screenings with post-screening discussions via Zoom.

Would you like to host a virtual or in-person screening of The Shadow of Gold? It’s easy and affordable. To find our more, visit our REQUEST A VIRTUAL SCREENING PAGE.
