Women to Women Symposium

The Vaughan Chamber Women’s Committee is excited to announce the 2017 Women to Women Symposium Keynote Speaker, Deepa Mehta, Canadian Filmmaker and Academy Award Nominee.

Deepa Mehta is an Oscar-nominated (Water), transnational filmmaker whose work is celebrated on an international scale. Her emotionally resonating, award-winning films have played every major film festival, and many remain audience favourites.  She is best known for her Elemental Trilogy: Earth, Fire, Water. Other films include Bollywood/Hollywood, Heaven on Earth, and the epic adaptation of Midnight’s Children – Salman Rushdie’s three-time Booker Prize winning novel. Her work challenges traditions and stereotypes and is always daring, fearless…provocative. Mehta is both a rebel and a humanist, and that spirit saturates her newest work, Beeba Boys, a tough, stylish gangster film.


SAVE THE DATE: November 15th, 2017
