Welcome to the 4th year of the Immigration Film Fest (IFF), held in the greater Washington DC area from October to December 2017.
This year, we are elated to announce that, in partnership with the International Cinema Series, we are joining a consortium of other organizations under the unifying umbrella, Films Across Borders: Stories of Migration, thereby amplifying the mission of our annual film festival, bringing as many stories of immigrants and refugees as possible to Capital area audiences.
From October to December of 2017, the IFF will be partnering with the AFI Silver Theater and Cultural Center, American University’s School of Communication and College of Arts and Sciences, Cultural Services of the French Embassy, DC LaborFest, the Goethe-Institut Washington, the Mexican Cultural Institute, the National Gallery of Art, and SPAIN arts & culture to bring the best narrative and documentary films on immigration to the Washington, DC area.
