City Embers Screening

Homeless youth face many challenges in Edmonton. A new film project funded by the Edmonton Arts Council sheds light on their stories. Created with the help of youth themselves, City Embers celebrates its first official screening at 7 p.m. on Monday April 18 at MacEwan University’s CN Theatre. The film exposes Edmontonians to the difficulties youth and young adults go through in their own city, and across other urban centres in Canada.

The release will also include a panel discussion with actors, the film crew, and special guests. Tickets for the event are available for free through by searching “_City Embers_ Screening.” Find more information on the event at the City Embers Facebook page by searching for City Embers. If anyone has any questions about the film or its release, please contact Taro Hashimoto at

Rylan is the Program Coordinator of the Inner City Recreation and Wellness Program.
