Dreaming of a Better Future!
 “There is hope in dreams, imagination, and the courage of those who wish to make those dreams a reality.”
 -- Jonas Salk, discoverer of polio vaccine
Voted “Best of Fest”, the inspirational film 2040 is re-screening Tuesday Feb. 11 at 7 pm at the Stan Hagen Theatre, North Island College, Comox.
2040 is an aspirational journey to discover what the future could look like if we simply embraced the best that exists today. 
This is the narrative the next generation needs to see, to aspire to, and to believe is possible.
See event details here, and the film’s trailer here.
