We are thrilled to announce launch of the Refugee Film Festival during Refugee Week NSW on 17-18 June at the State Library of NSW.
The Festival will be screening films featuring the turbulent and harrowing stories of refugees fleeing conflict for the safety of themselves and their families. At a time where the refugee population is at the highest it has ever been, the Film Festival celebrates the unimaginable journeys that refugees take to seek safety. For many, the journey doesn’t end when they are resettled, trauma recovery and belonging take time and the support of the community.
