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.

After Afghanistan fell to the Taliban tens of thousands of Afghans made their way to the United States. They were allowed to stay under a program called “humanitarian parole.” But that status expires in a couple of months, and although they can renew one time, many are calling for Congress to pass the Afghan Adjustment Act, which would allow them to seek more permanent status.
