The Film Club


Building empathy through the language of film

Welcome to NAE’s new Film Club, a monthly virtual film series focused on immigrant filmmakers and subject matters related to the immigrant experience in America. Each month we’ll screen one movie for free and then host a virtual discussion with a key  member of the film team to discuss themes of immigration. 

RSVP today for our next film screening, Storm Lake!
