Create your own Facebook Watch Party.

In these difficult times, we need your help to organize NIRV Screen&Discuss events in your community to raise awareness about the issues facing new immigrants and refugees.


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.
