Project FINE (Focus on Integrating Newcomers through Education) and the Frozen River Film Festival are hosting a film screening on Thursday, September 19, from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Winona County History Center 160 Johnson Street. The screening will include four films and a discussion about how people can work together to build a welcoming community. Light refreshments will be provided.
“New Immigrant and Refugee Visions” (NIRV) is a collection of short films developed by Community Supported Film by and about immigrants that provide a unique insiders’ perspective on the integration challenges they face and the contributions they make to the culture, economy and social fabric.
Project FINE is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a respectful and sensitive community. This film screening is part of their annual celebration of Welcoming Week, which brings together immigrants, refugees, and long-time residents in a spirit of unity to build strong connections across the community and affirm the benefits of welcoming everyone – including new Americans.
Frozen River Film Festival (FRFF) is Minnesota’s only all-documentary film festival. Now in its 15th year, FRFF presents more than 80 films annually during the festival weekend (February 5-9, 2020), brings in filmmakers from around the world, and works with students on the documentary film-making process.
