Documentary film is one of the most powerful tools to galvanize social change. Our impact campaign has kicked off with the goal to stimulate conversations surrounding mental health in immigrant communities and advocate for more culturally sensitive and relevant education and treatment.
We plan to accomplish this by engaging with mental health organizations, immigrant support networks, refugee settlement agencies, and international student bodies to put on film screenings paired with facilitated discussions with experts.
If you would like to host a screening or organize an event, please follow this link to complete a Request Form.
If you have any questions or suggestions for the campaign, please contact us:
