THIRD ACTion Film Festival
The time is now! A cultural shift has started and we are but one more pebble in the landslide that is age-positive living in Life's Third Act. The term “third act” has been around for more than a decade and Jane Fonda made it popular with her 2011 TED Talk.
For the vast majority of Canadians, the third act will be the last 3 decades of our life. Because we are living longer, Statistics Canada advises that this will be our 70s, 80s and 90s and there is about to be way more of us than there will be younger people. Everyone's third act is personal though and can occur at any age.
THIRD ACTion Film Festival's focus is to celebrate ageing and the accomplishments of older adults to help speed along an age-positive culture shift and empower everyone to envision their best third act.
In 2021, all our films will be either subtitled or closed captioned. We will also have American Sign Language (ASL) Interpretation of the film introductions and Q&A sessions for all of our ReCast screenings.
