Past Screenings

  • The first screening was “The Upstanders,” which explored all sides of cyberbullying, from bully to victim, bystanders and family members.  The power of social media means that bullying is now a 24/7 phenomenon.  This documentary demonstrated that participation from everyone is needed to eradicate cyberbullying, helping bystanders to have the confidence and tools to become “Upstanders,” and help change toxic narratives.
