The Breast Fest Film Fest takes place in Toronto from Friday, November 2, 2012 through Sunday, November 4, 2012, with a mission of utilizing Arts and Film to educate and build dialogue about issues surrounding Breast Cancer. The Festival includes Films, a Speaker Series and a Comedy Night.

Documentary Pink Ribbons Inc. also poses the much-thought-about question: where do all the proceeds from all these “Pink” Campaigns in support of Breast Cancer go and what is achieved?
