Your Impact

We are in the Public Engagement phase of the New Immigrant and Refugee Visions (NIRV) project. Learn how you can organize a NIRV Screen&Discuss event.

  • $25 will pay for the production of discussion materials for each event, including Film and Filmmaker introductions, Discussion Guides and Action Toolkits.
  • $60 will pay for a filmmaker/presenter’s per-event stipend.
  • $200 will pay for the screening equipment, room rental and other event logistics.
  • $500 will pay for the travel and accommodation to a national event for a filmmaker/presenter.
  • $1000 will sponsor a Greater Boston event.
  • $1500 will sponsor an event in a city like Salt Lake City, Nashville, Houston, or Des Moines – where 10-30% of residents are foreign-born but 50-100% of the state’s representatives have voted against immigrants on national legislation.
  • $4500 will sponsor a 3-event trip to one of these cities.
  • $1-20,000 – Hours of people power it takes to coordinate and evaluate even just one event.
Support of CSFilm enables us to:
  • Train, mentor and collaborate with local storytellers from underrepresented communities in documentary filmmaking and video-journalism;
  • Facilitate their production of powerful stories that visualize and articulate economic and social challenges from the local perspective;
  • Build and strengthen distribution networks between local social-issue mediamakers, their communities and an international community of concerned citizens.
