Arlington International Film Festival is collaborating with the town of Natick to launch its own Film festival which will be officially launched in 2020. In preparation for this, AIFF is hosting a pilot screening featuring immigration shorts.

The screening will take place on Saturday - August 24 at the Common Street Spiritual Center from 2 pm-4 pm, immediately following the Multicultural Day celebrations on the Town Common.

New Immigrant and Refugee Visions (NIRV) is a collection of documentary films by and about new immigrants from 13 countries of origin. Their stories provide a unique insider perspective on the integration challenges faced by immigrants and the contributions they make to our culture, economy and social fabric. The filmmakers made these short films to engage communities in dialogue about immigrants and immigration. http://csfilm.org/films/new-immigrant-and-refugee-visions/

This event is generously sponsored by Kensington Investment Company and is made possible by a partnership with the Natick Center Cultural District, the Town of Natick, MA and the Arlington International Film Festival.
