Films uniquely captivate audiences and jumpstart conversations. The films featured by the Greater Washington Immigration Film Festival (GWIFF) tell immigrant stories that promote understanding of immigration and the problems faced by immigrants and encourage conversation about how to respond. GWIFF will show selected feature films and documentaries over four days from October 22-26, 2015 at locations in Maryland, District of Columbia, Virginia. Organizers expect that over 1800 people will attend at least one showing. In addition, the Van Ness UDC Theater of the Arts will host an afternoon Youth Program on Saturday, Oct. 24th, followed by the annual GWIFF Gala and reception in the evening. The Gala will feature a special movie and a high-profile speaker to discuss our immigration system.

GWIFF invites your organization to partner with us to publicize this groundbreaking festival and to draw as many people as possible to the film showings. Partners promote the festival to their networks via social media, e-newsletters, email lists, and publications. While we always appreciate in kind or financial contributions to help make this event a success, partners are not required to do so.
