The NGO Committee on Migration hosted an online NIRV Screen&Discuss, June 25, 2020,  with CSFilm director Michael Sheridan.  The event brought together leaders, staff and activists from a global coalition of organizations working on issues of migration and displacement.  The Chair of the Committee wrote following the event:

On behalf of the NGO Committee on Migration, I want to thank you for a really interesting presentation and discussion yesterday at our final monthly meeting for 2020, this one virtual. The project you have undertaken, to train migrants and refugees to become film-makers and record the stories of their lives and their concerns, is a really fascinating community undertaking, designed to both foster coherence among the migrants and refugees themselves and understanding in the wider community.

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.
