Due to COVID-19 and current restrictions, it wasn’t feasible to run the Routes to Roots Film Festival as in past years, so organizers decided to make some changes to this year’s festival by focusing on filmmakers with a connection to Norfolk County, partnering with the TIFF Film Series monthly screening at The Strand, and collecting non-perishable food items and supporting local agencies.

“We are pleased that we’re able to move forward with this year’s festival, even in a modified capacity,” says Jim Carroll, Chair Routes to Roots Film Festival committee. “Norfolk County has been supportive of the festival since its inception 4 years ago.  This year, we’re focusing where we think the need is strongest and concentrating on promoting local artists and helping those in our community affected by food insecurity.”
