New Immigrant and Refugee Visions (NIRV) is a collection of documentary films by and about new immigrants in the United States.

Produced by Community Supported Film
Community Supported Film amplifies local voices in under- or mis-represented communities – whether they be from AfghanistanHaiti or the US – so that they can communicate their lived-realities through documentary filmmaking.

 


In response to the current crisis we are making these films available online for free for a limited time. Help us cover our costs by donating.

Buy the films and support CSFilm by asking your town or institution’s library to purchase the films.
