The GlobalFest FilmFest is hitting the screen his weekend while promoting multiculturalism.

Festival director Ben Tsui said the event presents films that cross borders, perspectives and viewpoints.

“Hopefully it engages audience to start their own dialogue after the film and engage in more cultural perspectives,” said Tsui.

Films being showcased include Dim Sum Funeral, about a group of siblings who struggle to hold a traditional Chinese funeral for their mother.

Another is Dakota Sky, about a girl who has the super power to hear the truth in what everyone says — or the lies.

In total, 12 films and shorts will be shown at the Chinese Cultural Centre and tickets cost $10 for each film.
