Upcoming Get-the-NIRV Screen&Discuss Events

If it’s in your neck of the woods…please join us for an upcoming event:

Cary Memorial Library
Event details

Join filmmakers Rafael DeLeon, Qin Li and Braulio Tellez Vilches and their subjects for a screening and discussion of She’s an American Child, Campaign for a New American and Lift with Your Heart.

Host a Screen&Discuss event!

These films raise awareness, foster dialogue and promote action in communities welcoming and resistant to immigrants.

We are working with national, regional and local organizations around the country to plan events that specifically engage communities with diverse and divided backgrounds.

National Partnership with Welcoming America

For ten years, Welcoming America has been the driving force behind “Welcoming Week” – an annual series of events during which “communities bring together immigrants, refugees, and native-born residents to raise awareness of the benefits of welcoming everyone. In 2018, there were more than 800 events around the country.”

Read more about CSFilm’s participation in Welcoming America’s Pittsburgh conference May 14-17, 2019.

NEW Actions and Resources in the Action Toolkit

In response to wonderful ideas, questions and requests from participants at the premiere events, we have updated the NIRV Action Toolkit. Even if you haven’t been to a Screen&Discuss event, you’ll find lots of great information to help you, your neighbors and colleagues take action to make your community more welcoming.

For those of you who attended the premiere and provided ideas and made requests in your feedback, you’ll want to take special note of these sections of the NIRV Action Toolkit:

You can help share immigrant stories to increase understanding and motivate action:

  • Donate to engage people both resistant to and welcoming of immigrants
  • Host a Screen&Discuss event in your community
  • Share these new films by and about immigrants and refugees

Thank you to all the Friends of CSFilm, for your support.

Community Supported Film fosters good governance and equitable societies by strengthening local voices. We train women and men to effectively communicate the pressing issues of their communities through documentary filmmaking. Their films are used to inform public opinion and policy.
