FilmSocial is a collective of Toronto-based Lefty cultural critics, workers, organizers, educators and activists sponsored by the Socialist Project‘s Cultural Committee. We aim to contribute to and strengthen the cultural Left within and beyond Toronto by bringing together community members for screenings, interpretations and discussions of the politics of popular films.
