Pursuing the Dream: Refugee & Migrant Film Festival
Addressing the global migration crisis, The Exodus Institute focuses their efforts on finding solutions to ongoing issues affecting forced migrants by supporting interventions and models to influence policy and practices that improve the lives of forced migrants.
In an effort to raise public awareness of the centrality of immigration to America’s history and the advancement of our democracy, The Exodus Institute and the Martha’s Vineyard Film Society are teaming up to host the first annual “Pursuing the Dream: Refugee & Migrant Film Festival"
They have intentionally selected Soufra to bring each member of the audience inspiration, awareness, and human connection as the story shared is a powerful reminder of what it means to be human, while showing how there are more things that bring us together than divide us.
“Pursuing the Dream” is a three-day event focused on the journey, the lives and the future for refugees and migrants in the United States taking place July 26-28, 2019.
Two different films will be shown each day; the first at 4:00 pm at the Capawock Theater and the second at 7:30 pm at the Martha’s Vineyard Film Center. There will be an opening reception on the first day. The 7:30 pm films will be followed by a panel discussion focusing on the main topic of the day and the film.
