Your Impact

We are entering the Public Engagement phase of the New Immigrant and Refugee Visions (NIRV) project. See details of the Public Engagement plan and schedule.

  • $25 will pay for the production of discussion materials for each event, including Film and Filmmaker introductions, Discussion Guides and Action Toolkits.
  • $60 will pay for a filmmaker/presenter’s per-event stipend.
  • $200 will pay for the screening equipment, room rental and other event logistics.
  • $500 will pay for the travel and accommodation to a national event for a filmmaker/presenter.
  • $1000 will sponsor a Greater Boston event.
  • $1500 will sponsor an event in a city like Salt Lake City, Nashville, Houston, or Des Moines – where 10-30% of residents are foreign-born but 50-100% of the state’s representatives have voted against immigrants on national legislation.
  • $4500 will sponsor a 3-event trip to one of these cities.
  • $1-20,000 – Hours of people power it takes to coordinate and evaluate even just one event.

Support of CSFilm enables us to:

  • Train, mentor and collaborate with local storytellers from underrepresented communities in documentary filmmaking and video-journalism;
  • Facilitate their production of powerful stories that visualize and articulate economic and social challenges from the local perspective;
  • Build and strengthen distribution networks between local social-issue mediamakers, their communities and an international community of concerned citizens.

Michael called on FCTV to join him in working to educate the public about the importance of who selects and reports our news. Once the public starts hearing from more local voices we will begin to understand what the issues are that need to be addressed. We haven’t yet begun a dialogue based on good information.
