The Rivers of Justice Film Festival is an annual event in Three Rivers, Michigan, highlighting films exploring social justice themes. World Fare, a fair trade store in Three Rivers, started the Festival in 2009 with a Fair Trade Film Festival that featured two short films and a feature length documentary. In 2010, we changed the name to Rivers of Justice Film Festival to allow for a broader conversation going forward. In 2016, our sister organization *culture is not optional joined as an organizer. Each year, we try to highlight films that explore justice issues both locally and globally.
