About this Event
Bungalow, cottage, flat, gaff, hut, ranch, kulia, siheyuan, yurt are some of the ways we describe our dwelling. Perhaps the most complex question immigrants and refugees have trouble answering is – Where is home? Is it the place where you are physically located? Is it where your heart is? It is where your memories are?
With that in mind, we decided to build a film festival that celebrates the lives and experiences of immigrants, refugees, asylum seekers, expats who left their land of birth for myriad of reasons and moved to the United States of America. We are interested in wide variety of topics such as migration journey, border security, education, employment, documented and undocumented immigration, community integration, family separation, DACA, resettlement of refugee and asylum seekers etc.
We encourage narrative and documentary filmmakers and music video producers to share their work with almost 800,000 immigrants who reside in North Carolina.
