Showcasing international tales of courage, hope, and determination, this careful selection of documentary and dramatic films will captivate you with stories of immigrants and refugees struggling to find a place to call home.
Millions of migrants, countless stories, 25+ films, 10 venues.
Films Across Borders showcases inspiring stories of courage, hope, and determination, as international voices and perspectives are portrayed via dramatic features, documentaries and shorts. Despite tremendous challenges, immigrants and refugees are often able to overcome and even prosper.
Discover the provocative tales of those who strike out for a new life –facing uncertainty, deprivation, and new and often confusing cultures and dangers– as their determination and a longing for a more peaceful life or in some cases, reunion with beloved family members, propel them to migrate.
Through panel events and post-screening discussions, experts will engage with the audience to answer questions and further explore the issues.
