Welcoming World Voices in West Hartford

A film festival about the contributions and challenges of new immigrants, refugees and people who cross cultural borders


Hello! West Hartford, in collaboration with our community partners, invites you to an ...
exciting storytelling event that will be held online through WHCI/TV & Zoom on Sunday, September 13, 2020 at 3:00 p.m.

We are pleased to bring to West Hartford a film festival and discussion that highlights the stories, challenges and contributions of immigrants, refugees, and those who cross cultural borders to live in the U.S. The event will feature a viewing of three short documentary films by people from Bhutan, Somalia, and Puerto Rico. The films will be followed by a discussion with panelists made up of local community members, film-makers and film subjects. This online screen and discuss event is being brought to West Hartford by New Immigrant and Refugee Visions (NIRV), a project of Community Supported Film (CSFilm).

We believe public dialogue about migration and immigration, stimulated by these experiential films, will give members of our community an opportunity for connection, mutual understanding and ideas to take further actions. Given your organization’s role in the community, we hope you will join us to participate in the discussion.

For more information about Welcoming World Voices in West Hartford, please contact Bepsie Perry at HelloWestHartford@gmail.com. We look forward to seeing you on September 13th!
